Toledo, Ohio - Mercy is pleased to welcome Timothy J. Koder, who has been named Chief Development Officer of Mercy Foundation, effective June 1, 2013. Tim joins Mercy from Bowling Green State University where he served as interim vice president of University Advancement and interim vice president/CEO of BGSU Foundation, Inc.
During Tim’s 13-year career at BGSU, he is credited with significant contributions, including launching a new strategic focus for the Foundation board, securing several million dollars in gifts and pledges, and offering leadership and support to the university’s 28-member Foundation board. Tim was responsible for a multi-million dollar budget and 903 endowed funds.
“Mercy is fortunate to have someone of Tim’s caliber and experience to guide our newly unified foundation,” said Kevin Cook, Metro CEO of Mercy and President and CEO of Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. “We look forward to his leadership within the foundation and his collaboration with those who continually support Mercy as we fulfill our mission within the community.”
Prior to joining BGSU in 1999, Tim served as director of Corporate and Foundation Relations at the University of Toledo. He is a graduate of The Ohio State University, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree in finance.
“I am proud to be joining an organization that is committed to fulfilling its long-standing mission of providing for all in need,” Tim said. “Working through the Mercy Foundation, I am looking forward to engaging the community and inspiring on-going philanthropy that will enhance the health of the Toledo area.”
The Mercy Foundation was formed following the unification of its four long-standing metro area foundations – Mercy St. Charles Hospital, Mercy Children’s Hospital, Mercy St. Vincent Foundation, and the St. Marguerite d’Youville Foundation.
The Mercy Foundation was organized to collaborate with donors to marshal charitable resources by funding state-of-the-art technology, visionary research, capital infrastructure, and innovative initiatives designed to improve the health status of the community. The foundation’s focus is to fund critical initiatives that typically cannot be funded through standard operations and would not happen without philanthropic support. All gifts —past and future— will be used solely for the donor’s intent. Any past gifts that were targeted to one of Mercy’s Toledo-area facilities will be used as the donor intended, with no exceptions.
