Sanford Health Foundation

Research Development & Prospect Management Analyst

In this role, I partner with development professionals to influence their efforts in support of the largest rural not-for-profit health system in the nation. I work with teams across Sioux Falls, SD; Fargo, ND; Bismarck, ND; Bemidji, MN; and Hillsboro, ND.

I built this position from the ground up, starting initially with the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation team and expanding the role to the Sanford Health Foundation enterprise. I created all of the department's necessary processes, procedures, forms, and templates, and continue to identify and recommend the best tools necessary for the job in this rapidly evolving industry.

I operate a one-person shop, responsible for all the research, directing my efforts toward analytics, identifying new donor prospects, and researching individuals, corporations, foundations, and more.
