The Miracle Maker Leadership Council (MMLC), comprised of Expect Miracles Foundation’s major donor circles, is a select group of leaders in the financial industry who lead the Foundation’s mission to provide impact funding to life-saving cancer research and patient care programs.
94% of individual donations support our causes. 6% covers administrative expenses. For MMLC donations, 69% is directed to support research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Belfer Center for Applied Cancer Science, and 25% is directed to the MMLC Fund for funding awards to promising patient care programs.
Yes, besides having an even greater impact on patients, members' votes for recipient organizations for the MMLC Funding Awards are weighted according to their circle membership. You can elevate to a higher donor circle at any time.
Expect Miracles Foundation is a major supporter of the heart of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s revolutionary research and development model, the Robert and Renée Belfer Center for Applied Cancer Science. The Belfer Center addresses key challenges in cancer treatments by leveraging DFCI discoveries and applying them to drug discovery and development. Thus, it is a perfect collaboration for the Foundation’s major donors to also support the Belfer Center as it is at the heart of Expect Miracles Foundation’s mission.
The Funding for the Patient Care Programs is decided entirely by the members of the Miracle Maker Leadership Council. Expect Miracles Foundation’s staff opens a Letter of Intent application annually in January and MMLC Members are asked to suggest their favorite cancer patient care charities to apply. Once the Letter of Intent applications are received, the MMLC Executive Committee narrows down the applicants and invites about 6-10 of the charities to complete the entire application.
Each MMLC Member is mailed a hard copy book and asked to review the finalist applications. Then, in late March, all MMLC Members are invited to the Selection Summit luncheon where MMLC Members discuss and deliberate on the applications. All MMLC Members are welcome to join in the deliberations. Each Member's vote for which charities should receive funding is weighted according to the circle level the Member belongs to.
