What is a Grant?

A grant extends financial support to local not-for-profit, community-based organizations to provide health-related services and programming for at risk and underserved populations. UChicago Medicine’s Community Benefit Grants focuses on one or more health priority area to ensure that each priority area receives attention.

UChicago Medicine offers grant opportunities each fiscal year. We are not accepting grant applications at this time. Please check back later this year for the FY19 grant information and submission deadline.

What is a Sponsorship?

A sponsorship is funding provided by the medical center to support an event or fundraiser. Examples include, but are not limited to, galas, health fairs, and awards celebrations. Priority consideration is given to organizations committed to work that align with our strategic health priorities.
