The Legacy Fund was created by and for people connected to Michael Reese Hospital through birth, family, education, career and community ties. It honors the hospital’s remarkable, enduring spirit and its many decades of accomplishments. Today, Legacy Fund members keep the Michael Reese spirit alive while making future accomplishments possible through the Legacy Fund, which supports the foundation’s programs and priorities. If you would like your gift to be connected to the Legacy Fund, please let us know.

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 Herb’s outstanding commitment to volunteer leadership and philanthropy through their support of the fund.

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.
