Case Study: Fairview Foundation

Who is funding your vision? We can help.


Fairview Foundation is the fundraising arm of Fairview Health Services, an award-winning nonprofit healthcare provider based in the Twin Cities with more than 22,000 employees and more than 3,000 credentialed physicians.

The Challenge

The Foundation needed a system to prioritize their investments in developing new community healthcare programs.

The Answer

Fox Advancement worked with Fairview to develop a Project Incubator methodology for prioritizing and launching new projects. Projects enter the Incubator and move through a thoughtful progression involving market research, stakeholder interviews, donor prospect identification, and business modeling.

The Result

Fairview Foundation is able to prioritize and invest in programs such as integrative health and youth grief services with the plans and knowledge in hand to maximize fundraising potential, address community needs, and ensure program sustainability.
