EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR SEARCH
Executive Director - Job Posting
Dear friends of Cancer Connection,
As you may know, Cancer Connection is a strong and vibrant organization that provides meaningful help to those traveling the cancer journey and generates significant goodwill within the community. We have a dynamic and hard-working team of staff, volunteers, workshop and support group facilitators, integrative therapists, befrienders, members of the board, and community supporters. You may not know some of the behind-the-scenes ways that Cancer Connection has been thriving under Kristen Elechko’s skillful interim leadership.
We provide more integrative therapies than ever before; we offer innovative Thursday afternoon programming, along with our broad offering of workshops and support groups. Through funding from Rays of Hope, the major funder of our breast-cancer programming, we were able to host our first metastatic breast cancer retreat, which was a huge success for the women who attended. There had been no community of support for people living with metastatic breast cancer, but now they have found one another.
We’ve had the most successful fundraising events ever in the recent Mother’s Day Half-Marathon and last fall’s Harvest Dinner. After ten years of Camping Out and one year of Camping In, Monte Belmonte will again Camp-Out on the courthouse lawn, this time in July. We were awarded a one-time $50,000 grant by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation a grant we received because of the efforts of one grateful participant who had a connection to someone at the Foundation and wanted to give something back to Cancer Connection. The Thrift Shop is thriving and winning awards. Funds from all of our donors, grants, and the Thrift Shop have helped us grow in staff and in the kinds and numbers of services we offer.
With all of this good fortune, we are well poised to find a permanent Executive Director to take Cancer Connection to the next phase of its evolution. We have contracted with United Personnel’s non-profit division to conduct a search for us. They have recently found the executive directors for the United Way and the Women’s Fund.
The job posting has the following details: Executive Director - Job Posting
We hope you will help us spread the word about our search for the next dynamic leader of Cancer Connection. Thank you for your continued goodwill and support of Cancer Connection.
Becky Jones, Board President
