About Advocate Charitable Foundation

Every day, Advocate Health Care meets the health needs of individuals, families and communities across the Chicagoland area and Central Illinois. Unfortunately, patient fees alone do not cover the cost of the care, nor do they allow us to expand and improve our services. As a not-for-profit organization, Advocate relies on philanthropy to expand access to care, enhance our patients’ experience, enable innovation and improve health outcomes.

Advocate Charitable Foundation staff and volunteers raise funds to advance Advocate’s mission, values and philosophy by building relationships and partnerships with individuals, corporations, private and public grantmakers, and others.

Charitable gifts—made by people like you—make a real difference!
