Our Tools: Incubation

Through our incubation tool, we take risks on new, experimental or proven ideas that hold promise to change the future of health for Chicagoans. Through partnering with visionary leaders, we support the fundraising and administrative burdens of a start-up and leverage public and private partnerships to scale their efforts.

Health First Collaborative

The Health First Collaborative is redefining healthcare so Black, Latinx, uninsured and other disinvested communities in Chicagoland can reach and maintain healthy lives.

Chicago Funders Together to End Homelessness

Chicago Funders Together to End Homelessness is an intersectional funder collaborative working to align resources and unlock new sources of funding to prevent and end homelessness in the Chicago region.

Vaccine Corps Partnership

Vaccine Corps Partnership (VCP) is a collaboration of multiple stakeholders from across the Chicagoland community dedicated to coordinating resources and learnings to ensure all Chicagoans can access the COVID-19 vaccine while strengthening a public health workforce to pursue health equity beyond this current pandemic.

The Intersection of Domestic Violence and Community Violence

Through conversations with our grantee partners, we learned community homicides were impacted by domestic violence. Through a collaboration with Crown Family Philanthropies, we are working to stimulate pilot projects to address the intersection of domestic violence and community violence.
