In 1878, a gift of $200,000 was enough to change the lives of more than 3 million people in Chicago and revolutionize health care in the U.S.

It still is.

Health really is a gift

It allows us to achieve our goals. It shapes our experience of today and our expectations and aspirations for tomorrow. It transforms our lives, our neighborhoods, our cities, and our society itself. 

Give health through the Michael Reese Health Trust, and you put more than dollars to work. You leverage the value of deep experience, knowledge-based strategies, and committed partners from every sector.

Think about what’s most important to you—what touches you most deeply, what you most want to achieve with your life—then call us at 312.726.1008.

We’ll work with you to make sure your gift has an impact that will be felt for generations.
