Louisville, Ky. (March 12, 2013)— The Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation, part of KentuckyOne Health, has named both Kathey Golightly Sanders and Matthew Williams director of major gifts. 

Sanders has more than 20 years of fundraising experience. She most recently served as director of development for Nativity Academy at St. Boniface.  Prior to that, she spent more than a decade as a fundraising consultant for nonprofit organizations. Sanders holds a bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma Baptist University and a master of divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Williams has worked in major gifts and development for nearly a decade.  Most recently, he was the director of major gifts at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville.   Williams has a bachelor’s degree and a master’s of business administration from Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina.

In their new roles, Sanders and Williams will be responsible for the overall management of the Foundation’s major gifts program.

The Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation raises funds to invest in outstanding patient care facilities and services, the education of health caregivers, advanced clinical research and improved access to quality medical care.

In late 2012, the Foundation announced the disbursement of more than $18 million from unrestricted funds for facility advancements, advanced clinical research and more, which represented the largest grants in the Foundation’s history.
