Founded in 2003 by Steve and Becky Chepokas in memory of their son, Mitch. Pinky Swear Foundation eases the financial and emotional impacts experienced by children with cancer and their families by providing basic needs support during a very challenging time. Cancer is not a one-day thing. It is hard to imagine what life is like to have a child going through cancer; it affects the whole family. That’s why our programs are so important. We do not limit requests from families, nor discriminate on socioeconomic status. When cancer enters life, the simple, everyday things aren’t so simple anymore.
The Role: Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Executive Director (ED) will have overall strategic and operational responsibility for Pinky Swear Foundation’s staff, programs, and execution of its mission. S/he will initially develop deep knowledge of field, core programs, operations, and development plans. The 5 year strategic goals for Pinky Swear include creating additional family focused events, developing youth leadership opportunities, diversifying fundraising, mobilizing additional volunteers, and growing geographically.
The ED will be thoroughly committed to Pinky Swear Foundation’s mission. All candidates should have proven leadership, business savvy, coaching, and relationship management experience. At least 5 years of senior management experience; track record of effectively leading and regionally and/or nationally scaling a performance – and outcomes – based organization and staff; ability to point to specific examples of having developed and operationalized strategies that have taken an organization to the next stage of growth. Non-Profit experience is a plus, but not required.
