The Henry Ford Development Team

Our mission at the Henry Ford Health System Development Office is to joyfully inspire giving and engagement that will transform health care in our communities. Our team of fundraising experts raises philanthropic support for all areas of the health system, with gift officers representing specific areas of interest.

Our goal is to connect donors—whether individuals, families, foundations, corporations, or others—to their passions to make a difference for our patients, community, and beyond. We invite you to connect with any member of our team to discover how you can make a lasting impact through giving to Henry Ford Health System.
