Meet Our Staff
At the Riverside Foundation, our staff is committed to continuously furthering the partnerships between Riverside Health System and the communities we serve.
Faye Petro Gargiulo
Vice President, Research and Development, Physician Recruitment and Foundation
"As the Foundation team, we have the honor and responsibility of channeling Riverside's Mission in a way that educates and motivates those who can help us achieve our Cause. We channel the trust, gratitude and beliefs of our supporters to bring our Mission to life."
"Its a great honor that, in my time at Riverside, I've had the privilege to accept gifts of gratitude from people who want to say thank you for the exceptional care they have received from our team."
Vice President of Development and Community Outreach, Eastern Shore
"Without your generous support, we would have never gotten our first hospital built in 1928. We never would have been able to replace our original facility in 1970. Our Cancer Center could never have been established. The generous support of our community has made all this, and more, possible over the past 85 years. Imagine the opportunities we will have over the next 85!"
Director of Advancement, Northern Neck & Middle Peninsula
"I'm proud to be able to support the healthcare needs of residents in the rural communities where I live. I'm not just raising money, I'm working to ensure the care your family and my family receives is the very best this region has to offer."
"Giving to others as you give to yourself allows everyone to get the most out of life."
Major Gifts Director
"Each of us, including my family, is fortunate to have access to exceptional healthcare at Riverside. The Foundation provides an opportunity for ordinary people to do extraordinary things. Through our high standard of personal care, we are making a difference in the lives of our patients, their families and our community."
Annual Giving Director
"There is something extraordinary about connecting people to an organization, a cause, in a way that touches them and moves them to give. Each time that happens, I feel such joy knowing the world is getting a little better – one gift at a time."
Gift Planning Director
"Every day, I have the distinct privilege of helping patients and families express gratitude to their caregivers for making a difference in their lives — in a way that can profoundly help other patients in need. Gratitude is powerful; it's the ultimate in encouragement and healing."
"Riverside's mission "to care for others as we would care for those we love" is truly inspiring. Working with the Riverside Foundation gives me the opportunity to support this mission and give back to the communities we serve."
