About Kelly Snyder

Kelly Snyder

Kelly served as Chief Development Officer and Patient Navigator at Madison Health Foundation before her death in 2019.

In her honor, OAHP members contribute to a scholarship to cover the tuition of OAHP's Spring Conference.

 

APPLYThe Ohio Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (OAHP) is firmly committed to providing meaningful opportunities to expand your knowledge, enhance your skills, and help establish professional relationships that will support you throughout your development career.

We are living and working in challenging times where words like downsizing, right sizing, and reengineering are having a major impact on all our budgets. Funds for professional development are usually the first to be sacrificed. We believe that education and networking are crucial for anyone responsible for fundraising in the healthcare industry. Our scholarships make that possible.

The OAHP Board encourages all members to consider applying for a scholarship, one of the many advantages of membership. Winners will be announced at the annual meeting of the spring conference.

Awardees of the $500 scholarships can use the funds from May 1, 2020, through April 30, 2021. The recipient of the Kelly Snyder Memorial Scholarshp will be able to use it for the 2021 OAHP Spring Conference.

The following scholarships are available. You must be a member of OAHP to be eligible:

  • Kelly Snyder Memorial Scholarship (OAHP conference registration)
  • OAHP Scholarship (OAHP conference registration + travel expenses up to $500 total)
  • Paul Ireland Scholarship (professional development tuition + travel expenses up to $500 total)
  • W. Bruce Evans Memorial Scholarship (professional development tuition + travel expenses up to $500 total)
  • Eleanor Jones Internship (OAHP conference registration for novice fundraiser + travel expenses up to $500 total)

The scholarship committee is led by Melissa Gayer.

If you are interested, please complete the online application by March 27.
