September 15, 2023

The Association for Healthcare Philanthropy this year gave its top honor to Fred Najjar, who retired in July as executive vice president and chief philanthropy officer of CommonSpirit Health and president of CommonSpirit Health Foundation.

The association's Si Seymour Award recognizes distinguished leadership in association affairs and the health care philanthropy community.

During his tenure at CommonSpirit, Najjar oversaw more than 80 local foundations and one national foundation that represented nearly 60,000 donors, 1,500 governance members, and about $300 million in support annually.
