Chris Broughton-Spruill joined the staff of Children’s Hospital in 1991 to establish the Development Office. In 2007, she was named President of Children’s Hospital Foundation. A graduate of Virginia Tech, Chris has worked in the development and community relations field for over 30 years. She leads the Foundation in all aspects of fundraising, community outreach, and strategic planning.
Born and raised in Richmond, Chris spent time in Raleigh, NC where she served as Director of Development for Peace College before returning to Richmond and joining the Foundation. At some point over the last 25 years, Chris' time at Children's Hospital Foundation changed from being a job to becoming a true vocation. Chris can imagine no better use of her time than working to make certain that all children have the benefit of quality healthcare.
Chris lives in Mechanicsville with her husband, Gary, and adopted beagle, Katie. While she has traveled across Europe a number of times, and particularly enjoyed London, her current favorite vacation destinations are Manteo, NC, and Greenbrier, WV. She enjoys listening to her husband play acoustic guitar with his bluegrass band and riding her beautiful Connemara pony, Calypso, every chance she gets.
