North Colorado Medical Center Foundation welcomes new president
GREELEY, Colo. (April 25, 2011) – A man familiar with the Greeley community has returned to lead the North Colorado Medical Center Foundation.
Chris Kiser stepped in as president of the fundraising arm of northern Colorado’s largest hospital Monday, April 4. He came to North Colorado Medical Center from Cheyenne Regional Medical Center Foundation in Cheyenne, Wyo., where he served as president.
At the NCMC Foundation, Kiser will oversee all aspects of fundraising for the foundation on behalf of NCMC.
Kiser last was in Greeley as the associate athletic director in charge of development, a position he held from 2005 to 2008. “I’m pleased to be back in Greeley and am looking forward to renewing acquaintances and developing relationships that will be beneficial to North Colorado Medical Center,” Kiser said.
After three years in Cheyenne, Kiser said he was excited to return to northern Colorado and to work in a large system hospital.
“I want to be a part of the community, to get out and involved with the donors and talking about the NCMC story. It’s a great story to tell.”
Kiser is a University of Iowa graduate and owned a consulting business that worked in fundraising and naming rights. He contracted with Larimer County in the early stages of development of The Ranch and Budweiser Events Center in Loveland.
The NCMC Foundation, incorporated in 1975, has served as NCMC’s philanthropic partner in supporting health care at the hospital Medical Center and in the community.
NCMC Foundation funding supports the purchase of advanced medical equipment, capital construction and continuing education for numerous departments at NCMC which include North Colorado Med Evac, Western States Burn Center, Will Rothman Family Chaplaincy and Cancer Institute. NCMC Foundation also provides oversight of integral community health care programs such as First Steps, Family Connects, Curtis Strong Center for the Visually Impaired and the Monfort Children’s Clinic.
