Kathy Lifton, President

Founded in 1909, The Evanston Woman's Board supports Northwestern Settlement through a wide scope of flexible options. A single action can make lives better for our neighbors. Since 1909, they've helped fill unmet needs through unrestricted grants supported by the Dollar Letter writing campaign. For example, in 2017 these indispensable donations launch the Family CARES mental health clinic for children and families. Beyond this kind of vital seed money, their backing provides stability for Northwestern Settlement to successfully win highly competitive grants and shores up inevitable gaps in funding for essential programs.

Since 1936, The North Shore Board's mission has been to fund Northwestern Settlement's House In The Wood camp, established for at-risk youth in 1910. As an all-volunteer auxiliary board, all proceeds from the annual House In The Wood Gala directly benefit this award-winning program, enabling children from Chicago's most economically disadvantaged neighborhoods to experience outdoor education sessions with a STEM curriculum during the school year, and attend a residential summer camp. In addition to fundraising, the members of the North Shore Board volunteer at the Northwestern Settlement in Chicago's West Town neighborhood and the House In The Wood Camp in Delavan, Wisconsin.
