NCH Foundation

Community Hosted Events


Throughout the year, many grateful patients, local businesses, school groups and others host fundraisers and donate the proceeds to NCH, directly affecting and enhancing the care that our patients receive. People choose to host fundraisers for many different reasons. Some have experienced exceptional care from a doctor or nurse during an illness or they want to give back so that others can receive the same level of care they did. Often, schools or social groups look for ways to help the community. Still others want to get involved in philanthropy to give back to their community. No matter the motivation, the common goal is this: to provide quality healthcare for our family, friends and neighbors

If you’d like to honor the memory of a loved one or provide philanthropic support to NCH, please consider hosting a fundraising event. Some fundraising ideas include bowling parties, concerts, golf tournaments, wine tastings, tennis tournaments, bake sales and walks/runs. Virtually any type of event where you can gather friends, family and community for a common goal is a great way to show your gratitude and give back.

If you have questions about how you can help NCH continue to deliver excellent healthcare close to home, please call the Foundation at 847-618-4260 or email

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a community-hosted or third-party fundraising event?

It happens when you, as a community member, want to show your appreciation for NCH’s excellent care of yourself or a loved one—or support an NCH live-saving program that is close to your heart. You can do this by hosting a special fundraising event or selling items and donating a portion of the proceeds, or by participating in a sporting event and asking your friends and family to donate to NCH in support of your passion.

Where in the hospital will my donation go?

100% of the funds raised will go to the cause you and our staff have selected.

Can someone from the Foundation or hospital attend or help me plan our event?

We enjoy working with our fundraisers by providing guidance and ideas, but due to our small foundation staff we are limited on the amount of time we can spend on your event. Remember: this is your event, this is your chance to make it yours. We hope that you will take the time to enjoy the planning, the big day/night and know that it is your passion that leads to the success.

How long before I hear after submitting my fundraiser proposal?

Proposals will be acknowledged within five business days of receipt, but in many cases you can expect to hear from a member of our team much sooner.
