KOENIG CHILDHOOD CANCER FOUNDATION

Image_202012081014

Koenig Childhood Cancer Foundation's is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in New York City with a mission to focus on and support both the children diagnosed with cancer and their families, financially and emotionally. We started in February 2020 and somehow, despite the pandemic, managed to raise nearly 80k in funds. Our founder, Elana Laila Koenig, is a 12 year old cancer survivor that's featured on the SomeGoodNews network instagram, CBS2 Manhattan, World Net Summit, and reached hundreds of thousands of viewers. That being said, we've been relatively inefficient when it comes to fundraising, and could use an expert that knows how to turn our views into actual results. We need someone who can suggest, advise, and work to grow us financially. The Fundraiser will work with the fundraising committee to generate revenue for KCCF. Our ideal candidate has a few years of fundraising experience and is dedicated to bettering the lives of children. Here are a few of your tasks:

  • Research prospective donors
  • Create a strong fundraising message that appeals to potential donors
  • Identify and contact potential donors
  • Use online platforms to raise donations
  • Organize campaigns or events to solicit donations
  • Maintain records of donor information

Our requirements are:

  • Kindness, empathy, and compassion towards others
  • Familiarity with online software and online fundraising

Some good things to have are

  • Social media experience
  • Experience working with children
  • Skill in project management

Mission Statement

Koenig Childhood Cancer Foundation's is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in New York City with a mission to focus on and support both the children diagnosed with cancer and their families, financially and emotionally. We essentially "adopt" the child and their families, and in doing so, we bring them into the KCCF Family and support their direct and indirect challenges as our budget allows. We handle many of their needs such as medical payments not covered by insurance, travel and housing-related expenses and emotional support such as birthdays and other events. Vision Statement: We heal the emotional and financial wounds of childhood cancer. Mission Statement: To build a child-led community of healing that individualizes support to families fighting childhood cancer. We’re there from diagnosis to beyond remission, because the financial and emotional burden of illness lingers even if cancer itself does not.

Description

What differentiates us from other organizations?
* We help children diagnosed with cancer, not only in during treatment, but also after, as long as the family needs it.
* We support a project in Azerbaijan to send children outside the country to get treatment not available there.
* We are global; supporting children from all over the world who come to MSKCC and the Ronald McDonald House Charities in New York City.
