OSMH Foundation Executive Director moving onto new challenges

Friday, June 16, 2017

(June 16, 2017)  The OSMH Foundation announced today that Nicole McCahon has stepped down from her position as Executive Director following 16 years with the organization including the past ten years in the senior role of the hospital’s fundraising arm.       

“For me personally, and for the Foundation, the time is right for a change,” said McCahon. 

“I’m very proud of the accomplishments my team and I have made during my tenure, generating more than 30 million dollars in support of the hospital. There are some personal goals that I would like to focus on now and I’m confident that I am leaving the Foundation in a strong position for future success.”   

A pillar of that future success was established earlier this year with the completion of a Feasibility Study assessing the current fundraising capacity in Orillia and identification of strategic options that are ready to be acted upon by the strong and capable team in place.  

“Nicole has done a tremendous job of guiding the work of the Foundation over the past decade,” said John Cameron, Chair of the OSMH Foundation Board of Directors. 

“While Orillians are among the most generous when it comes to charitable giving, the work of stewarding donor dollars has become increasingly competitive and we’re thankful for the professionalism and expertise that Nicole has brought to the role to keep the hospital in the conscience of the communities we serve.”

In 2016, McCahon was named a Fellow of the Association of Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), one of only 22 Canadians to achieve that designation, joining a select group of fewer than 200 AHP Fellows across North America.   She became a certified fundraising executive (CFRE) in 2007.

A search for a new Executive Director will begin shortly.
