As a Senior Vice President and Wealth Strategist at Bank of America, Jennifer Erdelyi discusses philanthropic impact with her clients regularly. She lives the adage of ‘leaving the world a better place than you found it’. As a mom, she wants to model service to community to develop the next generation.
Jennifer got involved with University Hospital Foundation last May after getting inspiration from Dr. Michael Curi, the Foundation’s Chairman. She says, “his excitement for the future was contagious”. He shared with her that “University Hospital has a soul and a heartbeat, so doctors work here because they choose this community.”
Jennifer recalls the first time she visited the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit where she observed limited spaces for moms to bond, intimately, with their babies. She sees the devotion of the staff and how simple upgrades could transform the space into a warm, nurturing environment and she is excited to help make that a reality.
Jennifer joined the Foundation’s Board of Trustees this past January with a commitment to provide strategic direction, support governance and help raise more money that supports patients and their loved ones.
