On December 9, 2010, Steve Sorin lost his four-year battle with cancer and we lost a dear friend and colleague. Steve was the senior director of development for Lifespan and, as such, helped build a solid infrastructure for our development operation.
Steve was the consummate development professional, with nearly 25 years of leadership experience in the field. Before coming to Lifespan in late 2006, Steve spent 10 years as the director of development at Trinity Repertory Company in Providence. Prior to Trinity Rep, he was with St. Andrew’s School in Barrington.
Given Steve’s great passion for the arts, music, education and mentoring, and the unique relationship he had with each of the Lifespan affiliates, a permanently endowed memorial fund in his honor has been designed specifically within Lifespan to address these interests.
The Steve Sorin Memorial Fund supports the following programs: art or music as a source of healing; the enhancement of the health care experience for patients; educational programs for patients and/or their families or continuing education for staff; and youth employment or youth mentorship programs at any of the Lifespan hospitals or corporate offices.
