Stoller, who joins Safe Kids Worldwide from The Marrow Foundation, the fundraising arm of the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), has served as chief executive at the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) and the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation, where he was responsible for increasing funding from $1.6 million to $16 million.

With more than 26 years of experience in public health fund development and leadership, Stoller will capably steer Safe Kids Worldwide through a critical next chapter in the organization's development, said Diana Goldberg, chairman of the Safe Kids Worldwide board of directors, in making the announcement.

"We are certain that Mitch is the most qualified person to lead us into a new and innovative era," Goldberg said. "Mitch's creative leadership, proven track record and fundraising prowess fits perfectly with our strategic commitment to strengthen our position in the public health field, build our capacity to save children's lives and create a governance structure that will help us achieve our global vision through our 20th year and into the future."

Stoller is seasoned fundraiser, executive

As president of the The Marrow Foundation, Stoller provided the strategic vision and leadership necessary to dramatically strengthen the fundraising and recruitment potential of the NMDP, which maintains a registry of more than six million bone marrow donor volunteers with the goal of helping cure patients suffering from life-threatening blood diseases.

Prior to that, Stoller served as the president and chief executive officer of the LAF, where he was responsible for leading one of the fastest growing nonprofit organizations in the field of cancer survivorship. Among other things, Stoller implemented a paradigm-changing program in the nonprofit world by introducing the LiveSTRONG wristband campaign. Stoller also worked closely with the board of directors at LAF to reinvent the board governance structure and led the organization through a strategic planning process.

Prior to that, Stoller served as president and chief executive officer of the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation, where aside from dramatically increasing the funding there, he created the Dana and Christopher Reeve Quality of Life program, which has invested more than $2 million in the disability community every year.

Public health experience fits with mission

As Safe Kids Worldwide celebrates its 20th anniversary of preventing accidental childhood injury, Stoller's impressive health-related experience will be crucial to the organization as it continues to grow and expand its global reach, said Martin R. Eichelberger, M.D., founder and director of Safe Kids Worldwide.

"Mitch's background in elevating health-related nonprofits to international prominence makes him an excellent choice to enhance our position in the public health community and to lead the organization even closer to its goals of protecting the world's children from the dangers of accidental injury," Eichelberger said.

Slated to begin his tenure at Safe Kids Worldwide on April 14, Stoller is looking forward to his newest challenge. "I am so impressed with the passion and focus of Safe Kids Worldwide's board and staff, and I'm looking forward to taking on a leadership role in advancing childhood injury prevention in the United States and around the world," Stoller said.

Safe Kids Worldwide is a global network of organizations whose mission is to prevent accidental childhood injury, a leading killer of children 14 and under. More than 450 coalitions in 16 countries bring together health and safety experts, educators, corporations, foundations, governments and volunteers to educate and protect families.
