Corporate & Foundation Giving

Philanthropic support from corporations and foundations like yours plays a huge role in helping us elevate and expand lifesaving clinical care. At NorthShore University HealthSystem Foundation, we believe that maintaining health and wellness is a community effort—and we invite your business or foundation to join us in building a healthier future.

NorthShore is fortunate to partner with grantmaking foundations and civic-minded businesses committed to improving access to quality healthcare in all communities and advancing breakthrough research. This level of giving allows companies to maximize their philanthropic goals, increase their visibility and actively align philanthropy with their organizational mission.

We invite you to explore a philanthropic partnership with us! There are many ways to make an impact through corporate event sponsorships, naming opportunities, in-kind donations or cause-related marketing campaigns. You can even encourage your employees to support causes in their community through an employee giving campaign or matching gift program.

Your gift can be customized to make the impact that’s most important to you and your company. You can choose to help us create novel clinical care programs, attract internationally recognized talent, purchase state-of-the-art equipment, or provide health outreach and education to our neighbors. Through your support, you’re bringing a culture of philanthropy to your organization and making quality healthcare more accessible in the communities where your employees work and live.

Ways to Make an Impact

Corporate event sponsorships provide an opportunity for your company to impact the health of our community while increasing your employee and public visibility. Sponsorship opportunities are available for NorthShore event traditions such as the American Craft Exposition or the Myra Rubenstein Weis Health Resource Center Luncheon.

Companies that hold employee giving campaigns can make the NorthShore Foundation or one of our impact areas options for their generous contributions.  

As a grantmaking foundation, you can connect directly to causes important to your own philanthropic priorities—such as research initiatives, scholarships or health education projects.

Your organization may choose to donate good or services for events or even to benefit patients.

Many companies offer matching gift programs—allowing your company to double or triple the impact of employees’ donations!

Through an incredibly meaningful one-time or multi-year pledge, you can transform NorthShore initiatives and receive lasting recognition through naming of facilities, spaces or even endowed faculty chairs.

A cause-related marketing campaign in partnership with NorthShore Foundation is an effective way to align your company with patient and community programs. A few examples of such efforts include donating a portion of sales during a defined period (like National Breast Cancer Awareness Month) or a drive to round up at the cash register.
