Meet Our Chief Philanthropy Officer

The foundation welcomes Nicole Orr

Our Providence St. Mary Medical Center family has grown, and we were pleased to welcome Nicole Orr, our new chief philanthropy officer, on September 11. Nicole comes to the foundation with nearly two decades of philanthropic leadership experience and is eager to carry our mission forward. 

Prior to joining Providence St. Mary Medical Center Foundation, Nicole was the executive director of Riverside University Health System, an organization dedicated to the health and well-being of Riverside County residents. Previously, she served as executive director of the American Heart Association, Inland Empire Division, where she led a team of development professionals and successfully increased revenue through principal gifts and fundraising events and secured multiple seven-figure gifts to support the organization’s goals.

“Nicole is a dynamic, compassionate leader, and we are thrilled to partner with her to raise awareness for the programs and initiatives that help us care for the patients and families we serve in the High Desert communities,” said Kenya Beckmann, chief philanthropy and health equity officer, Providence South Division.

Nicole holds a master’s degree from Washington State University in business administration and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Pepperdine University.
