The Echo Alliance

Echo Alliance Logo
Many Voices. One Goal

Created by Women • Led by Women • For Women

As drivers of change and innovation, decision makers, communicators and leaders, women know firsthand how to make a meaningful impact.

When women come together, our voices are amplified and our impact is multiplied. The Echo Alliance is a collaborative group of women – with a passion for making a difference – dedicated to supporting those affected by cancer.

The Echo Alliance participants are asked to make an annual $1,000 ($83/month) tax-deductible, targeted donation to Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center.

Echo Alliance participants have a say in how donations make a meaningful impact at Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center. When funding decisions are made, all current Echo Alliance participants have the chance to vote on the allocation of funds.

The voices have spoken in 2022! The inaugural Echo Alliance funding will bring next generation technology to Baton Rouge and help transform how women with gynecological cancers are treated. Learn more about this initiative.

The inaugural project funding is for 2022 and participants will regroup in early 2023 to review options for the next project.

The Echo Alliance Opportunities:

  • Opportunity to make a targeted, specialized philanthropic impact at the Cancer Center
  • Exclusive invitations to networking, educational and health events 
  • Personal and professional growth opportunities among a group of empowered women in the Capital City area
  • Plus more…

Angela Hammett

"As sister, mothers, wives, daughters, friends and neighbors, women are dynamic, powerful and compassionate by nature. Together, we can help improve the lives of those living with cancer in Baton Rouge. As the director of patient navigation, I have a first-hand look at the needs of our community of patients. By joining The Echo Alliance, I’m uniting with women of all ages and backgrounds to make a philanthropic impact in the community that has done so much for me."

Angela Hammett, Founding Member
