Nonprofit Development Veteran Lori Willis Joins Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara

Lori Willis

Long-time Santa Barbara resident and fundraising veteran Lori Willis has joined the Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara as its major gifts officer.

In her new role Willis will be responsible for securing major gifts for the development of the new Cancer Center.

“The Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara is pleased to announce Lori Willis as our Major Gifts Officer,” said Rick Scott, president of the foundation. “The addition of Ms. Willis to the Cancer Foundation will contribute to the success of the new Cancer Center.” 

Willis comes to the Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara from Bishop Garcia Diego High School. In her previous role as the advancement, major gifts, admission and communications director, Willis cultivated and solicited major donor prospects and stewarded families through the admissions funnel.

She also created and revamped the school’s marketing and communications strategy.

Beyond Bishop Diego High School, Willis has worked as the major gifts director for Direct Relief, where she collaborated with more than 200 donors whose contributions helped to support the organization’s annual operating budget.

Willis also has more than 15 years of sales and marketing experience, with companies including Givezooks!, Starbucks and The Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara.

Liz Baker is a marketing supervisor at Sansum Clinic.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
