Welcome

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. In preparation for these final years of grantmaking, trustees have elected to limit grant eligibility to organizations that have been funded by Ravenswood in the previous five years.

The deadline for 2015 proposals is September 2, 2014.
