Ways to Give

Healthcare is more challenging than ever in terms of reimbursement and market share. Ingalls is sound financially but must look to other avenues of funding if we are to continue to grow and maintain our independent status. Philanthropy has played a large role in Ingalls past success and is an ideal means to marry a donor's interest in giving (naming opportunity, estate planning, interest in healthcare) to our need for resources in the future.

Please consider helping Ingalls continue the excellent work that it has done. Any gift amount is properly recognized and acknowledged. Friends of the Foundation begin with gifts at the $500 level and include benefits such as quarterly newsletters, name recognition in our annual report, invitations to our donor engagement events and personal acknowledgement of your philanthropy.

New in 2017 is our Ingalls Wall of Honor which recognizes lifetime giving beginning at the $10,000 level. Please contact us to learn how to structure your support to fit your needs and achieve the recognition and impact you desire.

All gifts to the Ingalls Development Foundation are classified as un-restricted unless you designate your gift to a specific fund or purpose. Among the opportunities to enhance specific areas of care or interest at Ingalls are the following restricted funds:

Desser Comprehensive Breast Care Fund
Richard K. Desser, M.D., was a practicing oncologist who died of cancer at the age of 52. Dr. Desser started the clinical drug trials program at Ingalls. He helped launch the cancer support center in Homewood, IL. His specialty was breast cancer and Dr. Desser developed a world renowned reputation for care. Today, you can invest in our comprehensive breast care program at Ingalls through a designated gift to this fund named in Dr. Desser's honor.

Centers of Excellence

Ingalls is a recognized leader in a number of clinical areas that have inspired donors to designate funds into specific Centers of Excellence that attract philanthropic support. The following restricted funds are established in the following areas of clinical excellence:

Cardiology Orthopedics Oncology Neurology Retina

Ingalls Community Impact Fund

New in 2017, the Ingalls Development Foundation is pleased to introduce the new Ingalls Community Impact Fund. Launched as an immediate outcome of the extraordinary new partnership between Ingalls and the University of Chicago Medical Center, the new Ingalls community impact fund is a grant program funded by earnings generated from a board designated endowment fund.

These grant dollars are expected to fund programs that address chronic health conditions throughout the south suburbs in partnership with community non-profits. Watch for a formal announcement of the grant program later in 2017, including application guidelines and materials.
