Casey Woodard, President and Chief Strategist, Casey Woodard Consulting, LLC. presents this one-hour workshop that will heavily focus on strategy and tactics used by development professionals who consistently rank in the 75% percentile and above among their peers nationally and the rarefied air of achieving superstar status as a Major Gift Officer.
From 1991 to 2012, Casey served as administrator of the Woodard Family Foundation, the 8th oldest foundation in Oregon, created by his grandfather in 1952. During that time, he worked with philanthropists and foundations across the country and, in the process, identified the evolutionary process many families follow and experience in their philanthropy.
In 1997, PeaceHealth called upon Casey. He started as a volunteer to help build a new hospital in Cottage Grove, advancing to chief executive of the Sacred Heart Medical Center Foundation then to the position of system senior vice president for philanthropy. Combined, Casey’s efforts raised $165 million across eight PeaceHealth foundations. Casey completed his time with PeaceHealth in 2013. In addition to leading his consulting practice, he is Faculty member, The Fund Raising School, a program of the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, at Indiana University.
