Support for Our West Side Communities

The progress we make in improving the well-being of Chicago’s West Side communities is propelled by the continuing support of our partners. Local organizations, city schools, residents and community leaders are just a few of the partners who allow Rush to reach the diverse neighborhoods that surround us — and donors play just as big of a role in making this possible.

When it comes to Rush’s community programs, donor support is the difference between treating a disease and preventing it altogether, improving health inequities for a day or bridging the gap for a lifetime.

Continually assessing the needs of its most vulnerable communities, Rush knows that overcoming such complex health, economic and education disparities is too large of a task to achieve on our own — but it’s a vision that donor support will make a reality.

Your gift will enable Rush to increase life expectancies, reduce economic hardships and improve quality of life.

Make your gift to revitalize Chicago’s West Side communities.
