Through purposeful grantmaking and thoughtful partnership, the Ravenswood Health Care Foundation serves as the living legacy of the former Ravenswood Hospital Medical Center.

Remaining faithful to the values and mission of the former hospital, trustees carefully invest $1 million each year in support of community-focused health care, education, outreach and prevention. In effect, they empower community agencies to continue the healing and service that once took place at Wilson & Damen.

Advocate Health Care will continue to fund the Ravenswood Health Care Foundation through 2017. As part of the planned sunset of the Foundation, only current grantee organizations are eligible to apply for 2016 and 2017 grants. Organizations that are not currently grantees of the Foundation will not be eligible for future funding.
