Leading the next generation
The Field Associates are a group of dynamic young professionals passionate about the Field Museum’s mission to fuel a journey of discovery across time and create a better world. Since 1997, these emerging leaders have worked to support one of Chicago’s most iconic institutions through fundraising, networking, programming, and service.
Open the door to special fundraising events, exclusive networking opportunities, and more by making a $250-per-year contribution. Board and executive committee members make a commitment to amplify their impact by raising additional gifts through personal networks.
