CCRF welcomes new leader – Elizabeth C. Allen

Children’s Cancer Research Fund is proud to announce that Elizabeth Crippen Allen will join the organization as Chief Executive Officer. Elizabeth comes to CCRF from Twin Cities PBS (TPT), where she served as Chief Revenue Officer, overseeing the development and implementation of organizational strategies to achieve TPT’s revenue goals. She is a dedicated leader with executive experience in both for-profit and non-profit organizations, who is deeply committed to centering staff in the development and implementation of strategic initiatives, setting and achieving ambitious revenue goals and significantly growing the impact of the organizations she serves.

“I am honored to join the impressive team at Children’s Cancer Research Fund to continue their work providing support to families and making better, safer treatments for childhood cancer possible,” Elizabeth said.

Before her time at TPT, Elizabeth held leadership roles at Socrata, now a part of Tyler Technologies, where she worked with government agencies and administrations to build transparency initiatives to enrich the lives of their citizens, and at Reeher, acquired by Blackbaud in 2018, where she helped colleges and universities find more high-value donors and access the tools and information they need to measure their performance. Elizabeth holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Minnesota School of Journalism and an MBA from the Opus School of Business at the University of St. Thomas.

“Elizabeth brings strong, strategic leadership to the organization. She has great passion for CCRF’s mission and will drive growth and collaboration with our donors, partners and board,” said John Golden, CCRF Board Chair.
