Board members will be encouraged to engage their respective corporate organizations or associated organizations to provide monetary or in-kind giving.
Through mentoring new board members is to make them aware of what the Cancer Center mission is, its financial strengths, how the foundation supports the Center, and their responsibilities as a board member through meetings with Foundation and Center leadership and prominent volunteers.
Support for existing members will given through annual trainings to help directors fine-tune their fundraising skills and reinforce personal responsibilities/goals as a director.
In order to maintain a diverse, productive and active Foundation Board, an expectation of all Board members will be active and ongoing recruitment. Board members will work closely with the Foundation Director to identify and solicit potential Board member candidates.

The Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation's capabilities to successfully employ strategies to achieve our goals have been proven by our continued success in the growth of programs and services not found in most cancer care facilities.
The Foundation has a successful and committed volunteer force, whose time, talent and treasures are crucial in achieving our goals. We have over 300 volunteers working on our behalf throughout the year, including nearly 150 members of our committed and talented Guild and Men's Club which are two groups of volunteers who meet monthly to support projects at the Center as well as promote our programs in the community. Additionally, our 22 members of our Board of Directors provide valuable oversight, feedback and support as we continue to grow our programs.
The Foundation staff is committed to maximum transparency and the highest level of ethical behavior. As members of the Association of Fundraising Professional, every fundraising staff member receives ongoing education and training to bring fresh and inventive ideas to our fundraising program. Staff has committed themselves to the Donor Bill of Rights and are enthusiastic and diligent about bringing the best in fund development to our organization.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
