Join the EMH Foundation’s Employee Giving Campaign

For nearly 100 years, Elmhurst Hospital employees have been passionate and dedicated supporters of every service line at Elmhurst Hospital. 

Employee “philanthropy” began back in the late 1920s when a group of hospital student nurses “passed the hat” to raise funds for tennis equipment for the staff to have an outlet for exercise.  The Employee Annual Giving Fund builds on a PROUD TRADITION of employees supporting improved health care.  

Your continued generosity has helped to build new facilities, advance service lines, and create new programs - providing an inspiring example to the community of your commitment to delivering exceptional healthcare while philanthropically supporting the hospital’s key priorities.

Thanks to employees like you, we can continue to provide the highest quality and most compassionate care for every patient every day. Through your support, you are ensuring every patient has a safe, seamless and personal experience while in our care.

Gifts made by employees have enhanced patient care in countless ways:

  • Diabetes Center and the Jumpstart Your Health program
  • Healing Rooftop Garden
  • Comfort Care Carts for family members of patients
  • No One Dies Alone program and Butterfly Touch feature
  • Nancy W. Knowles Cancer Center services and equipment
  • Elmhurst Hospital Nursing Program and staff development

Watch the video below to see how your partnership can directly impact patient care and the work you do every single day. 

The Elmhurst Difference

Your impact on the health and wellbeing of our patients is both tangible and intangible, oftentimes producing a ripple effect that touches the lives of so many others. Your care for those most in need creates equally impactful stories every day. You are the “Elmhurst Difference.” 

Please join in the collective effort to continue providing hope and healing for our patients. Tax-deductible gifts made to the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Foundation can be directed to our unrestricted fund that supports the Hospital’s greatest needs, or an existing designated fund that more closely aligns with your personal interests.

Your gift, regardless of size, will help to make a significant impact on the Hospital’s top priorities, and your participation provides an opportunity to enrich the community for generations to come.
