Enid Olvey was promoted to president of the Arkansas Children’s Foundation, the fundraising arm of the Arkansas Children’s Hospital that is based in Little Rock with a second hospital in Springdale.
Olvey takes over from Fred Scarborough who will continue working as chief development officer for the Arkansas Children’s Heath System.
Olvey will also continue working as senior vice president of philanthropy for Arkansas Children’s at the system level while overseeing the strategy, leadership and administration of the 40-member fundraising team and it’s own independent non-profit. She has already logged 19 years with the organization and was part of the $52.8 million the group raised in 2018.
“A strategic fundraiser, creative thinker, and mentor to fundraisers and program managers, Enid is a true champion for children. She exhibits a passion for results and an unyielding commitment to the Arkansas Children’s mission of making children better today and healthier tomorrow,” Scarborough said. “No matter her role, Enid has undoubtedly transformed the fundraising team by focusing on mission, transformational impact, and meaningful board and volunteer engagement. This next stage in her career will advance fundraising that improves child health statewide.”
