NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) Foundation and its Auxiliaries are dedicated to assisting NorthShore in fulfilling its mission to "preserve and improve human life." We offer various opportunities for involvement and events throughout the year that encourage volunteerism and philanthropic support that benefit vital research and clinical care services at NorthShore.
The Auxiliary at Evanston & Glenbrook Hospitals provides members with a variety of service opportunities and membership events throughout the year, as well as hosts two annual fundraisers. The Hospitals’ Gala and the American Craft Exposition currently raise philanthropic support for NorthShore Center for Simulation and Innovation and ovarian cancer research. Since 1936, The Auxiliary has raised more than $20 million to support a variety of clinical and research initiatives at NorthShore.
The Auxiliary at Highland Park Hospital welcomes members who are committed to providing volunteer service and fundraising initiatives for NorthShore. Members make an impact with volunteer projects including Alcove Gifts, Mobile Meals and more. Philanthropic efforts, including an annual Be Part of the CURE fundraiser, currently benefit the Kellogg Cancer Center at Highland Park Hospital. Since 1921, the Auxiliary has had a proud tradition of volunteer support and fundraising.
The Associate Board of NorthShore University HealthSystem is a fundraising organization of young professionals providing members with philanthropic, educational and service programs benefiting NorthShore and the community. Since 2003, members have raised more than $500,000 to benefit neo-natal projects at NorthShore Evanston Hospital's Infant Special Care Unit and Department of Pediatrics.
The Women’s Board of Skokie Hospital educates, supports and advocates for a healthy community, with members serving as ambassadors between NorthShore and the community. Since its inception in the 1950s, the Board sponsors health and wellness programs as well as provides critical philanthropic support currently for Cardiovascular Services at NorthShore Skokie Hospital.
Family and friends of Myra Rubenstein Weis honor her life by supporting wellness and cancer survivorship programs at NorthShore through the Myra Rubenstein Weis Health Resource Center Benefit Committee, including hosting an annual spring benefit luncheon. Since 2006, the benefit has funded the Living in the Future (LIFE) Cancer Survivorship Program, diabetes education and community health education. MRW has raised more than $1 million since its founding in 1995.
