Auxiliary Board Information
The Auxiliary Board was originally formed by JPA Board Member Nan Kaehler, who along with her friends was interested in building a new volunteer base of support for the agency. The purposes of the Auxiliary Board are:

  • To promote good will and interest in the children and families under the care of JPA
  • To engage children through special arts, animal and architecture programs offered to JPA partner schools
  • To contribute and allocate all monies collected or earned from fundraising efforts during the fiscal year to JPA


Each year, the Auxiliary Board joins forces with the Board of Directors to raise significant funds in support of the Signature Spring Benefit. Additionally, the Auxiliary Board partners with the agency in providing JPA's client children and families with family oriented special events throughout the year.

Men and women are welcome to join. The Auxiliary Board holds new member recruitment and information sessions twice yearly. For more information, please contact mmarshall@jpachicago.org.
