The Field Associates

The Field Associates of The Field Museum is an Annual Fund level designed by and for young professionals who are Field Museum supporters. Our mission is to engage Chicago’s next generation of civic leaders at The Field Museum. Our members are 21 to 40 years old and share a common desire to learn about, support, and advance the Museum's mission: Exploring the Earth and its people.
