Meet the Individuals Who Support Good Samaritan

Gary Hackney

Director, Good Samaritan Foundation

Supporting the mission of Good Samaritan Foundation by providing personal, emotional, and social care has been the greatest honor of my professional life.

Having lived in southern Indiana since my parents moved here when I was 4 years old, I have been a part of many industries from planting and picking watermelons as a teenager, to becoming a teacher, coach and school administrator. However, overseeing the work of Good Samaritan Foundation has brought new meaning and purpose to my life.

In my personal life, I enjoy spending time with my grandkids, traveling, reading, listening to music, eating interesting food and enjoying a good baseball game. When we can, my wife Michelle and I also serve in ministries and support causes to assist those who are less fortunate.

Although I consider myself a rather shy person, most would disagree. I do love being in front of people whether it be announcing a sporting event, serving on a local civic board, or telling a story. I write skits, wear costumes and make people laugh to help them understand a concept or idea.

My passion is to be of service and to connect others with opportunities to serve. If you’d like to learn about the many ways you can make a difference, let’s connect! Email me at ghackney@gshvin.org or reach me by phone at (812)885-3377.

Nicole Coomer

Development Specialist, Good Samaritan Foundation

As Development Specialist for Good Samaritan Foundation, my goal is to help donors find meaning and purpose through acts of philanthropy. I do this by building impactful relationships with our contributors to better connect their generosity with causes that make a measurable difference in the lives of our patients, hospital employees, and community. As a committed pracademic (practitioner/academic), I have graduate degrees in Healthcare Administration and Business and have attained certifications as both a Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) through the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance and as a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) through CFRE International. I am currently a Doctoral student at George Fox University where I plan to research philanthropy and future technologies. In my personal life, I enjoy volunteering, singing and performing, physical fitness, and continuously learning through reading, research and exploration. However, my true passion is spending time with my wonderful husband, Jesse, and my sweet son, Malachi.

If you are curious about how your gift can make a difference, please via my email at ncoomer@gshvin.org or by phone at (812)885-3192. It is my joy to share how you can make an impact!
