Board of Associates

Founded in 1965, the Board of Associates is a group of dedicated volunteers who fundraise year-round through projects and special events in support of research and patient care at Fox Chase Cancer Center. 

The Board comprises four member organizations and one affiliate, harnessing the passion, creativity, and generosity of more than 500 volunteers who have raised more than $26 million in support of Fox Chase.

The Board of Associates is perhaps known best in the community for their Paws for the Cause event each year in the fall. This one mile dog walk raises money for different initiatives each year and brings together the staff, faculty, patients, care-givers, families, and community members of the Fox Chase area for a fun day with prizes, vendors, contests, and many furry friends.

Interested volunteers are invited to join the Board of Associates as a general member or within one of the following member organizations:
