Edith Sanford Convenes National Thought Leaders Council
Date:6/11/2013

Sioux Falls, SD (PRWEB) June 11, 2013

The Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation is breaking new ground in the nonprofit space by looking to successful entrepreneurs and social innovators to help reach its philanthropic goals. Last week in Sioux Falls, S.D., the Foundation convened the first meeting of its National Thought Leaders Advisory Council, a think tank designed to help formulate fresh new strategies for building grassroots support.

"The Edith Sanford initiative was founded as a catalyst for transformational change in the way we think about and treat breast cancer," said Kimberly Simpson, president of the Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Foundation. "Part of our success depends on going beyond the mainstream and leveraging the experience, connections and insights of creative, entrepreneurial thinkers from a wide variety of professional backgrounds."

“Edith Sanford stands out because it embraces innovation in everything from its mission to the way it does business,” said council member Ron McCray, a private investor and corporate director who has also served as chief administrative officer of Nike, Inc. and as chief legal officer of Kimberly-Clark Corporation. “Every for-profit business knows that a culture of creativity and innovation is the key to success, but it’s unique for a charitable nonprofit to be so nimble and forward thinking.”

The distinguished council represents recognized leaders in areas including biotechnology, IT, health care, food, consumer goods, apparel, digital media, finance, and political consulting. Each member was carefully selected to ensure a diversity of experience and perspective that the Foundation will draw on to help identify and maximize engagement, grassroots fundraising and major gift philanthropy opportunities.

In addition to McCray, the council boasts names such as
