After going to school for broadcast journalism and working in television sportscasting for ten years, Rick Peltier left the industry and went to work for a healthcare institution in Evansville before moving to the Region in August 2017 to work at Franciscan Health and oversee the Franciscan Health Foundation. As the nonprofit continues its mission, Peltier shares how it’s all about relationships.
Nobody is perfect, but Peltier believes that the Foundation does their fundraising the right way. “We build relationships first,” he says. “The money will come later, hopefully. But you have to know people first. You have to know what their philanthropic interests are, what their passions are.”
