July 2015 Update:


We'd like to update you on the activities of Eliane Markoff and her innovative charitable organization, Art in Giving. Last year, they received some visibility from The Globe:


and they produced a 3 minute video: https://vimeo.com/119906114

Art in Giving raises funds for childhood cancer research by selling the fine arts. It combines the creativity and generosity of over 60 artists with the needs of talented cancer researchers. Our business model makes it possible to increase funds available for pediatric cancer research without compromising other philanthropies. The funds we target are business expenses allocated for facility management to adorn buildings and offices. We also target budgets allocated for gifts to recognize individuals such as guest speakers and board members and to reward executives and other employees. Our clients include Microsoft, Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare, Sanofi/Genzyme, Pfizer and Raymond James.

So, if you are still in the working world, or can influence someone who is, please consider using Eliane's company to beautify your surroundings while making an impact in fighting childhood cancer. It's a WIN-WIN for all!



May 2011: Our twelfth feature to promote businesses of DEC Connection members is about Eliane Markoff, Digital engineer-turned artist and philanthropist. 

Eliane Markoff is a multi-talented, results oriented-executive with thirty years of experience in the high tech and biotech industries primarily as a marketing executive managing international programs and staff.

Elianeís current passion is in healthcare, specifically pediatric cancer research, patient safety, elder care, complementary therapies and non-invasive diagnoses and treatments.

Eliane is Founder of Art in Giving, a start up recognition company that combines culture with philanthropy to benefit pediatric cancer research and to help families cope with childhood cancer.

Organizations often look for new ways to reward outstanding performance to individuals and teams, express appreciation to board members, clients, partners and honor guest speakers. Appreciation is typically shown with gifts such as pens, clocks or bowls.

Art in Giving offers organizations a meaningful alternative. It offers them the option to recognize individuals or teams with a piece of fine art that reflects a core theme or a value in an organizationís mission.

If the honorees are presented with a piece of art, they will always remember the honor and the organization that honored them. If they are presented with an Art in Giving Certificate, they will have the added benefit of enjoying a cultural experience before they select their piece of art.

An ancillary yet significant benefit to Art in Giving is that fifty percent of the proceeds sold through the efforts of Art in Giving are donated to pediatric cancer research in collaboration with a national scientific advisory board and the Rachel Molly Markoff Foundation www.rachelmollymarkofffoundation.org

An Art in Giving gift certificate also makes a great gift for newlyweds and new home owners.

The Wellesley Weston Magazine featured Art in Giving in its Winter 2009/2010 edition. http://www.wellesleywestonmagazine.com/winter09/dept_artist.htm
