Sarah Brumwell
Director of Development
St. Luke's Foundation
 
Sarah graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in communications and public relations with the intent to one day work in philanthropy and development.  While at UNI, she worked at both MDA during the summer months and the UNI Foundation as a student ambassador during the school year.  After completely college, Sarah began her development career with Children’s Miracle Network and the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital where she led a team and fundraised more than $5M year after year.  After 8 years in that role, she chose to expand her background and accepted the role of director of development with the St. Luke’s Foundation to support St. Luke’s Hospital, UnityPoint Health.  She is passionate about Healthcare Philanthropy having had the opportunity to see so many families benefit from exceptional medical care, and truly understand how great care helps in healing. In addition to her career, Sarah is married and has two young girls, ages 3yrs and 16 months. She has previously volunteered with the North Liberty Community Pantry and helped coordinate events with a North Liberty parents group, and participated as a past committee member with Aiming For a Cure Foundation. Sarah is looking forward to engaging with the Cedar Rapids community further and being able to experience this town for all that it has to offer!
