The Associate Board has been formed for the purpose of supporting Gilda's Club NYC’s mission. Members are dedicated young New Yorkers who are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of people touched by cancer.


The mission of the Associate Board is to promote awareness of Gilda's Club NYC in the community it serves; organize philanthropic initiatives and provide volunteer service.  As ambassadors of Gilda's Club NYC they have the opportunity to participate in many different ways including fundraising, public relations, outreach and recruiting of new members.


Through the Associate Board, we hope to cultivate, inspire and empower a new generation of philanthropic leaders and supporters of Gilda's Club NYC.
