Our Cause

Since our inception, the Auxiliary has raised more than $10 million dollars supporting needs and initiatives for our hospitals. The Auxiliary collaborates with Northwestern Memorial Foundation leadership as well as the West Region leadership to identify priority healthcare needs within our communities. The Auxiliary Board then selects key initiatives to fund. Partnerships with Auxiliary members, individual donors, local businesses and organizations are a large part of our fundraising success.

The Auxiliary fundraises through many different resources and all revenue goes directly to the Auxiliary. Our initiatives include: a spring fundraising event, revenue from Hospital gift shops a variety of events held within the hospitals.

2019 Initiatives

The Auxiliary’s 2019 fundraising focus will be two-fold:
  • 1 Provide the final installment of our $1.2 million pledge to the Ronald McDonald House® near Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield
  • 2 Grant scholarships to area students pursuing health care careers
