A new (but familiar) face leading philanthropic support at Ellis

Thursday, February 23, 2023

Karen E. Mantas is a familiar face at Ellis. She joined the Foundation for Ellis Medicine as director of advancement in November 2007, and in January, she became the organization’s vice president and executive director, succeeding Marcy Steiner.

Mantas, born and raised in Clifton Park, is clear about the foundation’s mission, as outlined in this profile in The Daily Gazette.

“We raise philanthropic support from the community to support the services, the people and the capital needs of Ellis Hospital,” she said during a recent interview with The Gazette. “Years ago, the capital needs would have come first, but it seems that more and more the trend in philanthropy has been for funders to want to support people.”
