Presidential Visiting Committees

  • What It Means to be a Visiting Committee Member

    Dana-Farber’s Presidential Visiting Committees are comprised of individuals and representatives who have made single gifts of $25,000 or more; made commitments of $100,000 or more; or raised $100,000 or more through a single event or program. Members serve as educated ambassadors to the community at large, provide counsel and advice to the President, and help to provide and secure the financial and intellectual resources that support the mission and core values of the Institute.

    There are seven specialty committees that span different types of cancer, discovery science, and various Institute initiatives.  Membership is comprised of leaders in business, academia, and the community. Learn more about each committee and its specific focus here.
