NCH Foundation

About NCH Foundation

The dream of a community hospital for the people of the northwest suburbs began with a door-to-door fundraising campaign led by local citizens during the post-war boom of the 1950s. Today, some of those early supporters still reside in the communities surrounding NCH. They have witnessed and generously grown this once-small community endeavor into a world-class healthcare organization. NCH continues to be your community hospital and the charitable support and partnership of our community continues to be vital.

Among our most avid supporters are members of the President’s Circle.

We do not sell personal information or use it for purposes other than the support of NCH. We are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and donations to the Foundation are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. Our Federal Tax I.D. number is 36-3125193.

Our Mission

To inspire charitable giving that advances Northwest Community Hospital’s pursuit of excellence in serving patients and families.

Our Vision

To be recognized for creating true partnerships with donors, enabling them to experience the full impact of their support.
