Website Crohn's and Colitis Foundation

The Executive Leadership Council is a group of dedicated individuals, well-connected in their communities and industries, with a passion for supporting the mission of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. For more than 50 years, the Foundation has been dedicated to finding a cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis while improving the lives of patients. We cannot make advances without the involvement of community leaders like you and hope you will consider joining us.

Executive Leadership Council members are asked to connect the Foundation with new opportunities in the community and be a voice for the Foundation in your industry. The opportunities to make an impact is simple:

  • Lead a Take Steps fundraising team, either with friends and family or with your company
  • Recruit other volunteer leaders to start a Take Steps team
  • Open doors (help schedule meetings!) with local businesses with the goal of forming a corporate team or being a sponsor

Being creative and strategic about new revenue streams and growth opportunities is top priority for the Executive Leadership Council. In addition, we also ask that members make time for the following:

  • Attend and participate in Take Steps Executive Leadership Council meetings (length of meetings: 1hr)
    • October – Full council meeting
    • November – Email update / 1:1 meeting
    • December – Break
    • January – Full council meeting
    • February – Email update / 1:1 meeting
    • March – Full council meeting
    • April – Email update / 1:1 meeting
    • May – Full council meeting

  • Meet individually with and maintain communication with Take Steps staff regarding your progress
  • Attend the Take Steps Kickoff party (March 2022*)
  • Attend the Take Steps Walk (June 2022*)
  • Attend the Take Steps Awards Party in the fall (September 2022*)
  • Identify and assist Chapter staff with the recruitment of new Executive Leadership Council members

The Pittsburgh Take Steps Executive Leadership Council is collectively responsible for raising new revenue to meet or exceed the fundraising goal of $25,000. We hope you’ll consider taking on this leadership role and helping find cures for the more than 3.1 million Americans currently suffering from Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
