Introducing The Board Corner - A place where our board members will be able to communicate important information and share their stories to patients and their families. The Board Corner can also be found in our monthy chapter e-newsletter. Visit The Board Corner!
Minnesota/Dakotas Chapter Board
Every Chapter, whether staffed or volunteer, has a local Chapter Board. The Boards are designed to support CCFA through fundraising, support programs and patient and professional education. We look to Chapter Boards to support our mission, to maintain a strong presence in the community and partner with chapter staff to reach the Foundation's goals.
As volunteer leaders of the organization, we ask that boards share their wisdom, professional expertise and financial resources.
