Our corporate partners – through donations, in-kind contributions, sponsored events, matching gift programs or employee fundraising projects – play a huge role in helping ensure that the greatest care and love continues to be given to our young patients. Listed below are several ways a company can partner with Children's Hospital of Illinois and also benefit from the partnership.
Benefits for Your Company
Creating a relationship with Children's Hospital of Illinois is a great way to boost employee morale and develop a sense of community. Chances are, some of your employees have used the services offered by Children’s Hospitals, or they may have been treated here as a child themselves. Employees and their children may participate in our many events and activities that not only raise funds, but also raise the awareness of the importance of children's health. Furthermore, corporations are fulfilling their social responsibility to the community.

Your employees can make a difference at Children's Hospital. Workplace giving is an opportunity for all employees in your company to support Children's Hospital through a company-wide fundraising effort. Current workplace giving programs might include payroll deduction designated to Children's Hospital or a fundraising activity such as dress-down days. By making a contribution based on level of comfort, each employee feels that he or she has made a significant impact. Every penny counts!
Children's Hospital recognizes all workplace giving corporate partners at our donor recognition receptions.
Many employers will match donations made by their employees to nonprofit organizations that will sometimes double or even triple the size of your contribution. Please be sure to take advantage of this program if your employer offers it.
Corporate Giving Through United Way
Another way to support Children's Hospital is through a donation to the United Way Campaign. You may give to the United Way of your choice and indicate that you would like to support Children's Hospital of Illinois. By indicating Children's Hospital of Illinois on your pledge card, you can designate that your contribution directly supports our efforts.
