Milwaukee, WI, June 22, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Providence Newberg Health Foundation, located in Newberg, Oregon, provides a community outreach and philanthropic support role to Providence Newberg Medical Center (PNMC). PNMC is Oregon’s newest hospital and is also the nation’s greenest. The U.S. Green Building Council announced in 2006 that PNMC received Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, making it the “greenest” hospital in the United States. Providence Newberg is the first hospital in the nation to earn this designation. The foundation completed a $5.2 million fund raising campaign called “The Time Is Now” for the new medical center.
Gary Hubbell provided campaign strategy and ongoing counsel to the foundation throughout the campaign. Following the successful completion and assessment of the campaign, foundation leaders decided to engage Gary Hubbell Consulting to provide ongoing counsel to maintain a comprehensive, ongoing fund development program.
Shari Lynn Scales, Executive Director of Providence Newberg Health Foundation, stated, "I consider it an honor to continue a partnership with Gary Hubbell and his new company. After his assistance in helping our small community hospital foundation exceed an unprecedented capital campaign goal I could not imagine continuing to grow our organization without him. Gary's effervescence, unyielding talent, and constant urging to think outside the box are invaluable traits to any non-profit wanting to achieve monumental goals in relationship-building and resource development."
As a strategic planning and resource development consultant with almost thirty years experience helping nonprofit organizations fulfill their missions, Hubbell is well positioned to assist Providence Newberg Heath Foundation as it builds on its recent success. With Gary Hubbell Consulting’s guidance foundation leaders will be able to chart direction for the foundation, creating greater team synergy, better resource application, and higher return on investment.
In addition to Hubbell’s work serving as counsel and coach to organizations across the country, he is an active author and speaker. His independent research resulted in the publication of his first book, Forces of Change: The Coming Challenges in Hospital Philanthropy (Association of Healthcare Philanthropy, 2005). His second book, co-authored with Mary Reinders, entitled Lessons from Benchmarking: Fast-Forwarding the Maturity of the Fundraising Operation, is due for publication this summer.
