The Foundation for Women’s Cancer (FWC)—the official foundation of the SGO—is pleased to announce the hiring of Pam Lewis, MEd, as the Director of Major and Planned Gifts. Pam has over 15 years of development and corporate sales experience. Her development roles have been focused in academic medicine, clinical healthcare systems and disease advocacy work. She has successfully worked with CEO’s, clinicians, researchers, patients and family communities, and she has developed an understanding of the sensitivities each of those groups require. Pam’s focus will be expanding FWC’s donor base, generating community relationships and leadership giving, as well creating and implementing a legacy (planned) giving program.
“The majority of those in the fight around gynecologic cancer—the patients—never wanted to be a soldier, but those who fight for them and alongside them—the clinicians and researchers – are the reason I work in healthcare and the reason I joined FWC,” said Pam. “I am inspired by the people, the work, and the urgency to change the trajectory of these diseases. Finding the financial support to bring a path to care and cure is a great reason to go to work every day and I’m honored to be a part of this outstanding team.”
In her most recent position with the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston, Pam was responsible for the strategic development, growth and planning for the Jewish Federation as well as the design and implementation of an $8.5M annual campaign. Pam has a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the University of Missouri-Columbia and a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Houston.
