For more than 175 years, Rush has been a fixture on Chicago’s medical landscape. Generous philanthropic support has allowed us to continuously elevate the quality of our patient care, research, education and community outreach.
As a not-for-profit health system, Rush depends on charitable donations to sustain our patient care efforts, while training tomorrow’s health care professionals, pioneering new health advances and strengthening communities in Chicago and around the world.
Here’s how you can join us in our mission:
Memorial and honor giving
- Honor a loved one, mark a special occasion, thank a caregiver or show gratitude to an important person in your life by donating in his or her name.
- Go beyond your own donation and involve others in our cause by creating your own fundraising webpage for Rush.
- Protect your financial security while sustaining a cause you believe in with a planned gift to Rush.*
Corporate and foundation giving
