The Blood Cancer Foundation of Michigan (BCFM) in Farmington Hills, formerly the Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan, has announced Stacey Anderson as director of development.
In her new role, Anderson will oversee all fundraising programs and development activities to advance BCFM’s mission of supporting patients and families, emotionally and practically, as they navigate the immediate and ongoing burdens resulting from any type of blood cancer diagnosis.
Previously, Anderson served as national director of development for the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation. It was there that she developed and implemented a fundraising program to advance education and outreach efforts. Anderson also served as vice president at Aly Sterling Philanthropy and development director at CAPS, an Indiana-based nonprofit supporting families to prevent child abuse and neglect.
“We are beyond thrilled to welcome Stacey to our team” says Heidi Grix, president and CEO of BCFM. “Stacey is an enthusiastic and innovative development professional who has a proven track record of delivering results.”
In her new role, Anderson will design and implement a plan for developing key external
alliances, cultivating individual, corporate, and institutional philanthropic support. She will work to forge new relationships to build BCFM’s financial resources, impact, and visibility across the state. In addition, Anderson will serve as a key leadership team member and active partner in decisions affecting those served by BCFM.
“I am thrilled to join a strong team of lifesavers who empower thousands of patients, families, and caregivers affected by leukemia, lymphoma, and other blood cancers,” says Anderson. “It will be a privilege to partner with members of our communities across the state to raise funds and resources that have a direct impact in giving these patients and families power and hope. I look forward to the honor of sharing the inspiring stories of our mission at work and building meaningful relationships.”
Anderson is a graduate of Grande Valley State University and a member of the Greater Detroit Chapter Association of Fundraising Professionals.
