Significant philanthropic support has been and continues to be vital in furthering Seton’s mission to care for all with a special concern for the vulnerable. To help guide fundraising efforts and further develop relationships with community partners and supporters, The Seton Foundations are pleased to announce new roles for three key foundation leaders.
Donna Budak, FAHP, CFRE, begins a new role as executive director of The Seton Fund in addition to her current responsibilities as executive director of Seton Williamson Foundation. At The Seton Fund, established by the Daughters of Charity as the original fundraising arm for the Seton Healthcare Family, Donna will oversee fundraising efforts in support of Seton Medical Center Austin, Seton League House, Seton Shoal Creek Hospital, the three Seton Community Health Centers, and various Seton initiatives.
Donna’s extensive fundraising experience with the Seton Healthcare Family spans many years, including a role as director of campaigns for The Seton Fund. Of special note, Donna was director of major gifts and planned giving for the $86 million campaign to build and equip Dell Children’s Medical Center. Prior to joining Seton, Donna served as director of annual giving and director of development at Ballet Austin. She is a past president of Austin’s chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and serves on the board of the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce, the YMCA of Greater Round Rock and the Association of Healthcare Professionals.
