Saying Thanks


Every gift is appreciated. Your generosity supports excellence in healthcare that transforms the lives of our patients and their families. NorthShore Foundation offers recognition to our loyal, generous and future-thinking donors.

If you have any questions about donor recognition at NorthShore, please contact Tiffany Chiang, Senior Director of Stewardship and Research, at 224.364.7215.

Why Annual Giving?

Your annual gifts to NorthShore help sustain the level of growth needed to be:

  • Accessible to all patients, regardless of ability to pay
  • Innovative in research and clinical trials
  • Collaborative with renowned organizations like the Mayo Clinic and the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine


Annual Giving Societies

Charitable giving supports excellence in nursing at NorthShore through the Nursing STARS scholarship program.

NorthShore recognizes donors who give $1,000 or more each fiscal year through the Annual Giving Societies. These societies provide our generous donors with opportunities for recognition and involvement with NorthShore physicians, leaders and volunteers.

We offer these benefits with deep appreciation for our philanthropic partners and to help them stay better connected and informed on how their gifts help NorthShore to preserve and improve human life.

Benefits of the societies include members-only events with leading NorthShore physicians, invitations to medical lectures and educational events, and newsletter updates on the healing and discovery happening throughout NorthShore.

Lifetime Philanthropic Societies

The Lifetime Philanthropic Societies (beginning at $100,000) recognize cumulative lifetime giving. We owe our existence to the combined determination of our early benefactors and we look to the future with gratitude for today’s philanthropists who are helping us realize the highest levels of excellence in patient care, research and medical education. The lasting generosity of these donors allows us to continually strive for excellence.

Members of the Lifetime Philanthropic Societies are permanently honored on the etched donor recognition walls in each NorthShore Hospital and also printed in the NorthShore Annual Report. There are opportunities for personal stewardship updates with physicians and researchers to hear about the impact of members’ gifts.

For more information about giving at the Lifetime Philanthropic Societies level, please contact Murray Ancell, Executive Director, at 224.364.7216.

Members of The 1891 Society are recognized in the NorthShore Annual Report and are invited to events, including an annual luncheon with an opportunity to learn from physicians about the latest research or clinical programs.
