  • All members of the DFLC are encouraged to join one or more of our six committees. By participating in committee activities, members get more deeply involved with the Leadership Council and Dana-Farber, and have more opportunities to get to know fellow council members.

    Annual Giving Committee

    Chairs: Erin Morano and Bob Pieroni

    The Annual Giving Committee's mission is to advance Dana-Farber's lifesaving work through financial support. The Committee develops solicitation strategies and Annual Fund appeals, hosts fundraising and social events, and collaborates with Dana-Farber's Development staff to create targeted direct mail and email campaigns.

    All Leadership Council members are required to make a gift to the Leadership Council Annual Fund, which supports initiatives and programs designated as institutional priorities by Dana-Farber's President & CEO. These critical funds make an enormous impact in the lives of Dana-Farber's patients and families.
