NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) Foundation and its Auxiliary 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 of NorthShore University HealthSystem provides members with a variety of service opportunities and membership events throughout the year to benefit the communities served by NorthShore Evanston, Glenbrook, Highland Park and Skokie Hospitals. The Auxiliary also hosts its nationally-recognized annual fundraiser, the American Craft Exposition (ACE). ACE raises philanthropic support for innovative orthopaedic regenerative medicine research and pharmacogenomics personalized medicine research. Since 1936, The Auxiliary has raised more than $21 million to support a variety of clinical and research initiatives at NorthShore.
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 $800,000 to benefit neo-natal projects at NorthShore Evanston Hospital's Infant Special Care Unit and Department of Pediatrics. Currently, The Associate Board is raising funds to benefit underserved families through its Emergency Family Fund, as well as personalized medicine research related to post-partum depression in mothers.
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, free community health education programming and a variety of other projects. MRW has raised more than $1.25 million since its founding in 1995.
