The Independent interviews Connecs's founder, Dillon Kab

Dillon Kab loves marketing. Seventeen years old and at the beginning of her senior year at Ross School, she's looking at business schools like NYU for next year. If the senior project she's launched continues to perform as it did upon rollout this month, business schools may come looking for her.

For her senior project at Ross, Kab founded "Connecs LLC," which creates fundraising programs for charities and nonprofits. Her first program is "Ties for a Cure." It benefits the Max Cure Foundation, specifically supporting low income and military families with children battling cancer at the Stony Brook Pediatric Center.

27 East interviews Dillon Kab on Connecs & Ties for a Cure

She may still be in high school, but Ross School student Dillon Kab has created a company that she hopes she can grow well into her college years, and beyond.

In the spring, Dillon established Connecs, a limited liability company that creates customized fundraising programs for nonprofit organizations. Connecs is responsible not only for developing and carrying out a program, but also furnishing websites, press releases and other materials to help market it.

Dillon’s first program, Ties for a Cure, raises money for the Max Cure Foundation, a pediatric cancer charity. She has been selling neckwear donated by Dr. John Brennan of Hampton Handmade Ties—the local orthopedic surgeon happens to have a tie business as well—at local events and stores for $25. Dillon donates 85 percent of the gross revenue to the nonprofit. Over the past few weeks she has already raised $2,000, which has gone directly to Max Cure’s Roar Beyond Barriers Program, which serves low-income families with children being treated at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital.
