SCAHD Annual Holiday Celebration – Virtually!

The 2020 event will look a little different as we come together virtually to honor an outstanding leader and organization for all their work during a challenging year. We hope that you join us as we focus on the good things that happened this year and celebrate what is to come in 2021! Your support of this event will continue to bring viable education to our members and community of healthcare philanthropy professionals.

A Special Award to the Hearst Foundations

During these challenging times this year, many foundations have gone above and beyond to help local nonprofits. One such foundation is the Hearst Foundations. This year, SCAHD is honored to recognize the Hearst Foundation for their tremendous support to the Southern California region.

Paul “Dino” Dinovitz

Accepting on behalf of the Hearst Foundation is Paul “Dino” Dinovitz, Executive Director, Hearst Foundations.

Paul “Dino” Dinovitz became executive director of the Hearst Foundations in 2007. He began his tenure at the Foundations in 2005 as vice president and western director, and prior to joining the Foundations, Dinovitz was president and general manager of KRON-TV in San Francisco.

Dinovitz has served as general manager of local television stations in major markets throughout the United States. He began his career in 1970 as an account executive for Taft Broadcasting’s WDAF-FM Radio in Kansas City. In 1976, he became the local sales manager of Taft’s WTAF-TV in Philadelphia, and was then promoted to general sales manager. In 1980, Dinovitz was named Vice President and General Manager of Buffalo, New York’s WGRZ-TV, where he stayed for two years until moving to the same position at WTVN-TV in Columbus, Ohio.

In 1985, Dinovitz returned to Kansas City as vice president and general manager of Hearst Broadcasting’s KMBC-TV. During his tenure at KMBC, he built a new management team, redefined the station’s newscasts, and brought it from third place back to first in 1989. In 1996, Hearst-Argyle launched KCWB-TV, Kansas City’s first WB Network affiliate, and Dinovitz became vice president and general manager of that station in addition to his position at KMBC. After 13 years with KMBC, Dinovitz became president and general manager of Hearst-Argyle stations KCRA-TV and KQCA-TV in Sacramento.

In addition to his work in broadcasting, Dinovitz has served on the board of directors of many organizations, including Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Harmony in a World of Difference, Sacramento Area Commerce and Trade Organization, the University of California-Davis Children’s Hospital Board and the Capitol Unity Council.

A Kansas City native, Dinovitz graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Science degree in journalism.
