The Women’s Leadership Committee increases awareness and provides fundraising support for the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center. Two to three events each year attract the interest and financial support of women, often those who are new to the museum family. Events are designed to enhance and support other activities of IHMEC. Committee members attend regularly scheduled meetings and provide volunteer support for planning and managing the programs.
