We will provide basic, but proven, fundraising techniques and principles to the attendees encouraging them to build a diverse pipeline of funding to include: annual corporate and individual donors, major donors, special events and grants. We will build in time for plenty of questions.


Susan Keenan has decades of experience in successful fundraising, including the revitalization and restructuring of the Roper St. Francis Foundation in Charleston, SC. Transitioning the Foundation from a grant making institution to a supporting arm of the healthcare system, she led a team which raised over $50 million from the launch of the program in 2005 until her move to Columbia in 2014. Susan is now a fundraising consultant living in Columbia.



Donna Waites, prior to joining the Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina, worked in fundraising for 14 years raising money for Healthy Learners and Providence Hospitals in Columbia, SC. She was on the ground floor of the rebuilding of the Providence Hospitals Development Foundation in 2010 and created many successful best-practice models for sustainable funding for the hospital.
