Glenda J. Ferguson
Director of Development
Glenda was hired in 1988 as the Administrative Secretary for PVHMC Foundation.  At the time she joined the Foundation there were only two Associates - Vice President of Development, JoAnne Gray George and herself.  Glenda worked closely with JoAnne for 17 years and says "JoAnne was a great mentor, and provided me with the tools I needed to grow professionally in the non-profit sector." 
 
In 1999, Glenda returned to college with a goal of earning her Bachelors Degree. In 2004, she reached her goal and received a Bachelor of Science in Business and Management from University of Redlands.  Soon after graduating, she was promoted to Special Events and Grant Writing Manager, and again in 2008, to Director of Development.
 
Glenda's main responsibilities are special events:  Power of Red; Heartbeat Gala; Wine Tasting Event; and Celebrating with Style Fashion Show & Luncheon.  She truly enjoys being a leader and working with committee volunteers to set goals that will raise more funds.  Glenda's other responsibilities include the direct mail annual giving program, donor relations, and major gifts.  She loves people and is passionate when working with Friends of the Foundation, Board Members, Physicians; Associates, Volunteers and other community members on projects that will bring additional resources to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center.  
 
One of the biggest highlights in Glenda's career was receiving a gift in December 2009 in the amount of $900,000 from a loyal and long-time friend of the Foundation to create a Charitable Remainder Unitrust that would provide the donor with life-time income.  "It was very rewarding to put together a gift plan that would meet the donors personal and philanthropic goals, and at the same time benefit our hospital."   Glenda feels very fortunate to work with people who want to make a difference.
 
She lives in Rancho Cucamonga with her husband, Charlie and two dogs, Norton and Diesel.  She has two daughters, Ashley (24) and Brooke (18) who will be off to college in August 2010.  She enjoys bowling; karaoke; reading; family time and traveling.
