We partner with nonprofits across Chicago addressing our city’s health challenges. Through our Grantmaking program, we provide grant funding, advisory support and operational assistance to strengthen the programs and services of our grantee partners.

We are always here to advise, make connections and advocate for you, because your work is the core of our work.

We provide grants in three cycles through the year to our eight priority areas.

Your work is the core of our work. If you are interested in learning more about our Grantmaking program or applying to be a grantee partner, please contact us
