    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 ambassadors for Dana-Farber, providing counsel and advice to the President and helping to secure the financial and intellectual resources that support the Institute's mission.

    There are seven specialty committees that span varied interests. Learn more about each committee and its specific focus here.
