Frances Piccirilli

Frances PiccirilliFrankie recently joined the Henry Ford Health System Philanthropy team. Throughout her career across the sector of philanthropy she has learned the impact that passion projects can have on the community and world and sees her role as a creative connector. From fundraising for a local family-only homeless shelter to an arts organization, there are people working everyday to fulfill a mission and people making gifts to support that work. It’s partnership.  Partnership drives ingenuity, it transforms ideas from concept to fruition. While the philanthropic landscape has changed greatly over the years, one thing remains constant: people give to people. Frankie seeks to help build genuine partnerships from big ideas that can change the world, one gift at a time. Henry Ford Health System’s approach to embracing innovation is inspiring. She is hoping to bridge her work in philanthropy and the work in innovations to create partnership. 

Frankie lives in Detroit with her husband and two girls. She enjoys family time, yoga, and her passion project: a self-created art installation of 24 animal drawings with pastels, #thesocialdistancezoo.
