This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Women’s Board. Founded in 1966 by Dr. Arnita Young Boswell, the sister of Whitney M. Young, Jr., the auxiliary’s primary focus is to raise funds for scholarships in Whitney M. Young, Jr.’s name. The auxiliary is a group of 17 philanthropic women who believe that “to whom much is given, much is required.” Women’s Board members play an active role in advancing the growth of the Chicago Urban League through direct service and fundraising. “Our members believe that all things are possible when one is given support and the tools to succeed. By providing scholarships to students and supporting them along their educational journey, we are providing them the opportunity to gain the skills needed to be independent, critical thinkers, and productive citizens, says president, Jasmine E. Guy.” If you are interested in supporting the Women’s Board or interested in membership, email email@example.com.
