What it takes to fund and run a charitable foundation


The Pinky Swear Foundation was established by Steve and Becky Chepokas in memory of their son, Mitch.  Since Mitch’s death in 2003, Pinky Swear Foundation has provided more than $4.5 million in financial assistance and quality of support. They continue to help children with cancer and their families by providing immediate needs support and unique family programs.


Join us to hear from Erica Campbell the Executive Director and Vicki Radosevich the Director of Finance. They will discuss the trials and tribulations of funding and managing a charitable foundation.
