Rebecca Milner, Vice President of Institutional Advancement, mobilizes partnerships, resources and awareness in support of International Medical Corps programs that reach 10 million people a year globally. A preeminent First Responder, International Medical Corps provides lifesaving healthcare and training that builds self-reliance for people on the frontlines of war, disaster and disease in nearly 40 countries. Since its founding in 1984, the organization has responded to every major disaster of the last three decades - from civil war and famine in Somalia; to genocide in Rwanda and ethnic cleansing in the Balkans; earthquakes in Haiti, Japan, and Nepal; the Ebola outbreak in West Africa; and wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. Under Milner’s leadership, International Medical Corps’ institutional advancement team raises $40 million in cash and in-kind support each year. Milner has spearheaded the development of comprehensive, public-private partnerships with some of the world's largest companies and foundations, including Amgen, Facebook, FedEx, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, GE, Google, IBM, JP MorganChase, Wells Fargo and more that have led to significant improvements in the health and well-being of communities around the world. She also oversees International Medical Corps’ media outreach and public relations efforts, coordinating campaigns with celebrity spokespeople and entertainment industry executives. Milner collaborates with International Medical Corps’ board and advisory board members to raise awareness of and funds for its lifesaving work. She has more than 20 years of communication, fundraising and marketing experience and frequently speaks on humanitarian, global health and women’s health issues. Her expertise is frequently solicited by the major media, including CNN, NPR, Chronicle of Philanthropy and USA Today. During her career, Milner has served in a variety of communications and fundraising roles, generating support for organizations focused on economic development and human rights for women, development and freedom of the press and education.
