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. The Minnesota/Dakota Chapter proudly recognizes our volunteer leaders:
