Associate Board


About the Associate Board

The Associate Board is made up of a network of young Chicago area professionals who lead fundraising events and actively volunteer for the Emergency Fund.  Members bring a wide range of professional expertise as well as a commitment to the Emergency Fund’s mission of providing immediate financial assistance to help low-income Chicago area individuals and families through a crisis or transition.  

Active Members are expected to participate in regularly scheduled meetings, attend special events, and commit to an annual fundraising goal.  Membership is on a volunteer basis and is unpaid.  We value diversity and the contribution that each member makes to the group.  The Associate Board is self-led and supported by Emergency Fund staff.  Members have the opportunity to take on leadership roles through a two year commitment as an appointed executive team member (president, vice president, and secretary/treasurer) or as a chair of one of four committees (special events, marketing, recruitment, and fundraising/sponsorships)

Supporters are individuals who are interested in the Associate Board, but may not have the time to commit to active membership.  Supporters receive special event invitations, invitations meetings, and updates on our happenings by receiving regular emails.
