Heroes Foundation Hires Two Dynamic Non-Profit Professionals

INDIANAPOLIS — The Heroes Foundation has made two strategic hires to help the Indiana cancer organization fulfill its mission and continue to grow its reach in the community.

Janet Campbell Baker will fill the new role of Development Manager. She was most recently vice president of Keep Indianapolis Beautiful for four years, and vice president at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis for eight. Baker also has two years of experience serving on the Heroes Foundation board of directors.

Formerly project coordinator at the St. Vincent Foundation and 11-year executive director of Peyton Manning’s PeyBack Foundation, Elizabeth Ellis has been hired as Program & Event Manager at the Heroes Foundation. Ellis’ non-profit experience is far reaching, from holding professional positions to volunteer work, allowing her to view activities, opportunities and relationships from a range of viewpoints.

“We have an innovative vision for how the Heroes Foundation will serve the Indiana cancer community. With Elizabeth and Janet on board, we are positioning ourselves for long-term growth and impact,” says Vince Todd, Jr., chairman and co-founder of the Heroes Foundation.



The mission of the Heroes Foundation is to serve the cancer community through support, education and awareness programs, as well as through funding for medical and scientific research. Born from a cancer survivor’s desire to give back, the Indianapolis-based Heroes Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) public charity. Contact: The Heroes Foundation, 5309 N.
