The Founders' Board

The Founders' Board of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago believes that all children need access to superior care. Our lifelong commitment to this vision ensures a healthier future for all children.

Founders’ Board Giving Day

Promoting the health and well-being of children and adolescents beyond the hospital walls is a critical part of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago’s mission because we know that for most children their zip code impacts their health more than their genetic code. Your support of the Founders’ Board Giving Day TODAY will help raise critical funds in support of the Patrick M. Magoon Institute for Healthy Communities and rally our community around our mission to provide a healthier future for every child.
