Shari Scales

Regional Director of Development
Providence Foundations of Oregon

What is your role in the Foundations?

Providence wants to finish cancer, and I am honored to come alongside those who share this same passion. As the Regional Director of Development for the Providence Cancer Institute, I help people give of their time and philanthropic support at all levels in our quest to #FINISHCANCER.

Why Providence?

Patients come first in everything we do. Nearly every day, I am reminded by a patient or family member that Providence made them feel like a person, not a number. That has made all the difference.

What do you like to do in your free time?

When I’m not working alongside our donors, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two boys, walking, cooking, traveling, and giving time to my church and to the Association of Fundraising Professionals where I serve on our local Chapter Board.
