Annual Giving Societies

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.
