Building A New Box to Grow the Pie: Innovative Strategies for Philanthropy Tricia A. Bruning Senior Executive Director & Principal Gifts Officer
Grateful Patient Fundraising: Patient Perspective I My Doctor I The Whole Care Team and Value the Basic + Translational Research Behind Cancer Care
Grateful Patient Fundraising: Faculty Perspective My work and clinical needs are the most important priority for cancer patients The work of this institution to advance new therapies is the most important priority for cancer patients
Grateful Patient Fundraising: Scientific Perspective Because mice - although grateful - cannot make philanthropic gifts
Basic and Translational Science Fundraising: Often falls outside of grateful patient box Decline in NIH/NCI Support Institutional wells can run dry, be uncertain Need a new box

Innovators Network at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Susan C. Dolbert, Ph.D. Vice President, Development
• What is Innovators Network? • Why did we create it? • How did we build it? • The results • What’s next?
What is Innovators Network? Like-minded people who are less than 45 years old • Want to save lives faster by supporting innovative, early-stage research at Fred Hutch • Commit to an annual gift of at least $1,000 • Targeted representation from some of Seattle’s most impactful companies (Microsoft, Amazon, etc.)
Why did we create it? • Innovators Network (IN) was created in 2008 by a group of friends rallying around a cancer diagnosis • An opportunity to get in front of the next generation of philanthropists • Wanted to ensure we were top of mind for this group as they moved into a more philanthropic stage of their lives • Captured the interest of a group not yet committed to a specific cause
How did we build it? • Identified an initial group who were committed to its success • Fred Hutch development staff member offered to “own” this new group • Determined what kind of activities would appeal to people in their 20s to 40s • Happy hour formats 3X a year, showcasing rock star young physicians and scientists – Limited and defined time commitment, combining social time and science
How did we build it? • Recognized that social media and online communications were the channels to bring this group in • Focused on creating relevant, conversational, useful social media and other online content • Continually assessed interest • Discovered members wanted a larger, more public fundraising event. IN for the Hutch was created in 2012 • Encouraged members to leverage external events and develop cause-related marketing to benefit innovative research at Fred Hutch
The results Membership goal: 100 members by the end of the first year • Ended up with 131 members • Raised $306,000 IN for the Hutch raised $232,000 in 2012, its initial year; $363,000 in 2013. Committee wants this to be a million dollar event • Fundraising foci geared toward IN demographics – Pediatric brain tumors, transplantation using cord blood FY 2013 had 210 members • Since inception, have raised more than $1.5M for innovative research
What’s next? • Continue to put the best and brightest of Hutch scientists in front of IN members • Make IN for the Hutch a million dollar event • Create a structured plan to upgrade members to President’s Circle ($10,000 annual giving) while retaining IN loyalty • Create a smooth transition to for IN members as they age out of the under 45 demographic
