The Infant Welfare Society Auxiliary, established concurrently with the organization,
plays a vital role in the success of IWS. More than 750 members from 16 area chapters
volunteer thousands of hours and host fundraisers that raise hundreds of thousands
of dollars in support of the health care services IWS provides.
The Associate Board was formed in June 2008 to raise awareness among Chicago’s young
professionals of the local health care needs of under-served women and children and
the ways in which IWS serves those needs. The Associate Board advances the work of
IWS through fundraising, public relations and volunteerism.
