Donna Hammack is the Chief Development Officer at St. Elizabeth/Nebraska Heart Foundation, a position she has held since 2000. Donna has expertise in cultivating and soliciting major gifts, as well as serving as the head of the foundation, which primarily serves St. Elizabeth, a regional hospital and Nebraska Heart, a specialty cardiac facility. Donna has over 30 years of professional leadership experience and is a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) and a Fellow in Charitable Estate Planning (FCEP). Prior to serving in her present position, Donna was with the Good Samaritan Hospital Foundation in Kearney.

Some of Donna's recent accomplishments include funding for the establishment of the new and unique Pediatric Place, emergency care and hospital care together; the remodeling of the regional burn unit; construction of a canopy at Nebraska Heart; and funding of the Louise D. Schleich Women's Health Center.

Donna values building significant relationships with donors. She feels that one who invests in the foundation's projects should feel as much commitment and gratitude as she does; that is when the right gift is made at the right time for the right program.
