John Dargan Joins Spartanburg Regional Foundation

SPARTANBURG SC, April 16, 2014 – Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System named John Dargan as the new senior director of philanthropy for the Spartanburg Regional Foundation. He is tasked with growing a donor base dedicated to the delivery of world-class cancer care at the community level for Gibbs Cancer Center & Research Institute.


“John is an excellent addition to the Foundation,” said Marsha Gibbs, executive committee member of Spartanburg Regional Foundation. “He will build upon our existing talented staff to raise awareness and secure support for cancer needs in this community.”

Dargan – who served 17 years as president/CEO of Spartanburg County Foundation – brings a wealth of knowledge to his new position. Assets more than tripled during his tenure with the county foundation, and he expanded the number of that organization’s managed funds from 320 to nearly 900. This tremendous growth exemplifies Dargan’s proven ability in relationship building and fundraising, both skills necessary to foster Gibbs Cancer Center’s excellence in care, research and community involvement.

“I’ve known John for many years,” said Dr. Julian Josey of Gibbs Cancer Center, where initiatives are underway to expand and enhance services. “With his outstanding experience, he is a natural fit with our organization. I know he will do a great job.”

A native of Spartanburg and a graduate of Presbyterian College, Dargan served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. He then spent 25 years in the banking industry before joining the Spartanburg County Foundation in 1997. Dargan’s tenure with Spartanburg Regional Foundation
began April 14.
