OSWEGO N.Y. — The Oswego Health Foundation announced it has promoted Margaret Barclay to executive director.

In her new role, Barclay will raise and manage philanthropic support to help Oswego Health fulfill its mission of offering accessible, quality health care to the community. The Oswego Health Foundation, established in 2011, is a nonprofit organization that supports the health-care initiatives of the Oswego Health system.

Barclay will oversee all aspects of the foundation including the cultivation of major gifts, new donors, and events, according to an Oswego Health news release.

Barclay leads a department that includes the director of business and community development and the development manager for annual giving; she also oversees several foundation committees comprised of community members.

“I’m excited to be a part of a wonderful team that is working to raise awareness and support for all of the advanced services and programs offered by Oswego County’s healthcare leader, Oswego Health,” Barclay said in the release.

“We are pleased to have Margaret accept new responsibilities,” said Oswego Health Foundation Board Chair Barbara Bateman. “Members of the Foundation Board and I believe she is the right person to lead the Foundation as we continue to grow opportunities for the community to support local healthcare and our events.”

Before joining Oswego Health, Barclay held fundraising positions at various nonprofit organizations, including Oswego Opportunities, Inc. She is married to New York State Assemblyman Will Barclay.

In recent weeks, the Oswego Health Foundation has received support from several well-known organizations including $500,000 from the Shineman Foundation, which is helping the health system to construct a new “state-of-the-art” behavioral health services facility. The foundation has also received funding from Pathfinder Bank, Fastrac, Community Bank, Barb and John Sharkey, and the Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation, per the release.
