Herbert S. Wander Fund

The Herbert S. Wander Fund was established by the Michael Reese Board of Directors to recognize the steadfast leadership of Herbert S. Wander, who served as Board Chairman between 2006 and 2017. Since then, others have joined us to honor outstanding commitment to volunteer leadership and philanthropy through their support of the Herbert S. Wander Fund.

Special Funds and Perpetual Trusts

Generations of philanthropists helped build and support Michael Reese Hospital through lasting gifts to Michael Reese Hospital Foundation, Michael Reese Second Century Foundation and Michael Reese Health Plan Foundation. Today, their generosity lives on through our grantmaking. Michael Reese honors donor intent by administering funds, and as the recipient of income from trusts managed by outside financial institutions. We gratefully recognize the foresight and enduring contributions of these donors.
