Rock Schuler, CFRE, MDiv, DMin
Vice President of Development, Marketing and Community Programs
Rock Schuler joined Total Health Care (THC) on January 1, 2015 as its first Vice President of Development, Marketing and Community Programs. “Total Health Care and its staff have certainly fulfilled my expectations,” Rock maintains. “It is a high honor indeed to be associated with and support the wonderful people of THC who give so much of themselves so that others have the chance to live healthier, more abundant and happier lives. I am constantly standing in awe of the incredible work done by our direct care professionals, and of the commitment shown by my colleagues.”
Rock’s objective is to maximize donations to THC so that sliding-fees and no-fees can continue to be offered to eligible clients, and so that services will be expanded into new areas of need and among populations not previously reached, and finally so that the care offered by THC is indeed total because it addresses social barriers to healthcare access and follow-through – barriers such as inadequate food options, violence, unmet substance abuse and mental health needs, and health education. Developing relationships with donors is a growing part of this effort – relationships that allow donors opportunities to become investors, stakeholders who help shape THC’s vision and programs.
Rock lives with his wife Jennifer and their son Andrew. He holds a B.S. in Political Economics from the University of Wyoming, a Master of Divinity from Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry with an emphasis in Organizational Development from Seabury-Western. Of course, any introduction to a VP of Development would be incomplete without a “pitch”! If you are interested in the work Rock is supporting, and would like to contribute your ideas, time, and/or financial resources, please contact Rock by calling or emailing: 410-383-8300 x20153 or RSchuler@totalhealthcare.org.
