Our Goal: Everyone Has a Chance to Be Healthy

We believe that no matter who you are, where you come from, what your health condition is or your ability to pay, every Cook County resident deserves the same quality, responsive and respectful healthcare. And that everyone should have the same opportunity to live their healthiest life.

Quality Healthcare Should Not Be a Privilege

Founded in 2011, Cook County Health Foundation's focus is expanding access to and improving the quality of healthcare for people in our communities who have the fewest resources. Our funding directly supports Cook County Health, our public health system, and its services from their Trauma Center, Burn Unit, and stroke and cardiac care to supporting primary healthcare and health services for people living with chronic illness such as diabetes, asthma, and arthritis as well as education. Our work enables us to help improve the health and well-being of individuals living in Cook County.

Our Gala Supports Care for People in Need

Our Gala, held annually, is one way we raise money to support Cook County Health and the people they serve and has raised more than $1 million to support health services.

This year's Gala, September 25th at The Hilton Chicago, will raise funds to support care for individuals living with heart disease and diabetes from prevention and disease management to acute care.
