Your donation helps maintain these vital funds
The Employee Crisis Assistance Fund provides financial assistance for eligible employees. Every dollar you donate directly assists a co-worker who is experiencing a crisis.
“When I got the call that my husband was at the emergency room, everything felt impossible and so overwhelming. On top of the stress and tension from working through the pandemic, I was suddenly faced with a financial burden I wasn’t prepared for. It was such a blessing to receive help from the crisis fund during the worst time of my life. I was able to focus on my husband and family instead of worrying. I work for the best place with the best support system and I’m so grateful.”Northwestern Medicine Nurse
The Patient and Family Assistance Fund helps patients and their families’ meet needs related to their care when no other sources of funding exist.
“My sister had a hard time making food for herself while she fought cancer. She kept trying, but would lose her breath and end up back at the hospital. To help ease her burden so she could focus on healing, the Social Worker paid for frozen meals using the fund, and then helped connect her to Meals on Wheels. They really cared about her.”Grateful family member
The Healthier Communities Fund augments systemwide efforts to improve access to care and eliminate health disparities in the communities we serve.
“Together, we have been able to partner with the Northern Illinois Food Bank to provide mobile pantries for our patients and communities in need. This has been a meaningful opportunity to work with a community agency specifically to meet the needs of Northwestern Medicine patients.”Northwestern Medicine Community Affairs
