Opening the Aperture on Gratitude 


Health philanthropy leaders have avidly discussed the import and impact of gratitude on health care and philanthropy for 15 years.  However, it is time to take a more expansive view of gratitude and its implications for advancing both health care and generosity.  Join Betsy Chapin Taylor, FAHP, to explore not only the neuroscience and psychology of gratitude and how gratitude shapes health care outcomes, experience, partnership and philanthropy but also to break new ground.  This fast-moving and provocative session will leave philanthropy leaders with actionable insights to broaden your understanding of and to reshape how you think about harnessing the incredible power of gratitude in advancing philanthropy and heath care. 


  • Explore the latest research on gratitude and its implications for health care and philanthropy 

  • Unpack how the current health care environment changes how you must partner with clinicians 

  • Understand the antecedents to gratitude and how they are fostered 

  • Illuminate what you must do or consider right now to create a more holistic approach 

****Get the title for the afternoon session before this goes live****

Here is info for the afternoon session. She's working on a title and more but this should get us started. I also need to think a bit on the agenda as far as the times, etc. 


The role of hospitals and health systems is evolving.  It’s no longer just about responding to illness and injury in an acute care environment inside the four walls of a hospital.  The next curve of health care is about taking a proactive role in elevating community health status, equity, access and well-being.  Join Betsy Chapin Taylor, FAHP, for a set-up conversation to frame the current and evolving environment.  The session will then open to an expert panel discussion where you’ll unpack intentions and opportunities in this expansive space.  You’ll also see how smart organizations are picking, positioning and partnering on projects.  Finally, you’ll explore why it’s essential for philanthropy to support this work now and how to make the case for support to donors and other stakeholders. 

 Panel Presentation:

Donors First: Prioritizing Relationships Over Revenue

This panel conversation would be centered around views on the practicalities of prioritizing relationships over revenue within the fundraising organization.  This panel will discuss the opportunities and limitations of moving from a revenue-first to a donor-first approach.  We will also share and discuss best-practices of how various programs within the fundraising program have found ways to connect with their constituents in creative and meaningful ways.
