Associates Board

Associates Board


Founded in 2013, the Associates Board was created to elevate Gateway's mission and vision among young professionals in the Chicago area and beyond. Its members host fun and exciting events to spotlight Gateway's groundbreaking work. Members volunteer their time to further Gateway’s reach and impact, participate in activities that increase awareness of Gateway within their networks and raise funds for cancer research.
