Affiliate Board

The Affiliate Board of the Leukemia Research Foundation is a group of young professionals organized to support the Foundation in the fight against blood cancers. Our mission is simple, we are fighting to conquer blood cancer every day. Each step we take brings us closer to a world without blood cancers, such as leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma. Together we are raising funds and raising hope.

Why join?

Giving back is about more than just donating money to deserving causes. Sometimes the most impactful gift you can give a nonprofit is your time and talents. A very powerful way to do so is by joining a nonprofit’s junior board.

Our Affiliate Board has countless opportunities for hands-on leadership that can benefit you in your professional and personal life. This can also be a strategic way to grow your network—you can meet mentors or advisors, and build relationships with Affiliate Board members who share your passion for the cause.

As an Affiliate Board member, your responsibilities might include recruiting and engaging young donors and volunteers, providing a fresh perspective to the board or even managing internal projects or campaigns. You could also be tasked with planning and organizing events or acting as an ambassador for the organization.

Our Affiliate Board members are passionate about our cause. View the videos below to find out why.
