Sharon DaCosta, who joined Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy in November 2021 as the Foundation Administrator, has more than 15 years of administrative experience.
Ms. DaCosta served as administrative assistant or executive assistant in various industries, including finance and hospitality. She has an emotional connection for the work done at nonprofit organizations like Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy, which is dedicated to researching new avenues to create a cancer-free future.
“It’s meaningful to me because I’ve lost family members to cancer,” says Ms. DaCosta, “and I really feel working for a non-profit is more meaningful than working for a large corporation. I feel more purposeful in what I do on a daily basis.”
She handles administrative duties for Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy, including but not limited to management of the donor database, prepare donor communications, oversight of grant requests and payment timelines, assistance with external communication efforts, such as email newsletters and donor correspondence, and help with event planning and management.
