Be Our Friend: 

Be Recognized as Part of our Legacy:

Your annual or one time gift will be used to sustain our efforts to provide information and materials to residents around the state as well as support the costs to maintain our call center help line. Keeping residents aware of potentially harmful substances and how to create safer, healthier work/play/home environments reduces the occurrence of poisonings. No donation will be used to support indirect costs. Your membership will connect you to up to date alerts on health and poisoning events, advocacy issues, and legislative actions that impact the IPC. 


You can sign up online or download the Donor Form (PDF) to mail your check or money order. Credit Card information can be given either online or by phone (312-906-6136).
