Embracing a Broader View of Grateful Engagement

It is time for health care philanthropy executives to take a broader view of our work and a more expansive view of potential value creation. Too often, CEOs say that the foundation approaches issues from the sole perspective of philanthropy rather than approaching them with a systematic understanding of needs and opportunities of the health care organization or ecosystem as a whole. This means, too often, the ambitions of the philanthropy organization are perceived as out of touch with the greater, more all encompassing, vision of the health care organization.
