At Michael Reese, we take big risks to launch bold ideas to ensure all Chicagoans can live healthy lives. But the health challenges facing Chicago are far too complex and entrenched for us to create structural change by ourselves. That’s why we partner with Chicago’s visionary leaders in the start-up phase of launching their innovative solutions.
As a public charity, we are uniquely able to pool funds together from multiple funders and to serve as a fiduciary agent. We have the infrastructure in place to internally manage new initiatives to distribute funding and get the project up and running quickly and efficiently. Providing this type of collaborative support is the best way to fuel innovation and change, allowing our partners to focus on the work they do best.
