Audra Moran, Chief Executive Officer
Audra Moran assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer at Ovarian Cancer Research Fund in March 2010, bringing over a decade of nonprofit leadership experience. As CEO, she heads the largest charity funding ovarian cancer research in the United States. She directs the organization’s overall strategy, operations and fundraising to promote scientific progress and hasten breakthroughs in diagnostics and treatments with the ultimate goal of finding a cure for ovarian cancer.
Under Audra’s leadership, OCRF’s annual revenue has increased by over 35%, website traffic is up more than 300%, and grant applications have increased 160%. She has extended the organization’s national reach by expanding grassroots supporters around the country, and by acquiring another nonprofit organization, Ovarian Cycle, with indoor cycling events nationwide. Her board development has resulted in seven new Directors, as well as increased enthusiasm and participation overall. Along with her dedicated board, she continues to work towards growing OCRF’s presence and prestige.
Audra’s devotion to raising funds for research is matched only by her desire to improve the lives of women and their families who have received an ovarian cancer diagnosis. One of her proudest achievements involves recognizing a need, identifying a local model, and developing the national expansion of a support program for women undergoing treatment for gynecologic cancers, Woman to Woman. She secured national corporate sponsorship to ensure the success of the program, and with OCRF’s Woman to Woman Program now at 9 hospitals around the country, and expanding to at least 10 additional locations within the next three years, this serves as the perfect complement to OCRF’s robust research program.
