ENH – Kellogg Cancer Research

With a history dating to 1891, Evanston Hospital is the nucleus of the NorthShore University HealthSystem. Evanston Hospital demonstrates leadership in cancer and cardiac care, providing specialized cancer services at the Kellogg Cancer Center and comprehensive heart care at the Cardiovascular Care Center. Physicians work alongside leading researchers to translate the latest technology, treatment and research into improved patient care.

Family Matters

Family Matters is a family-centered organization in the North of Howard neighborhood that seeks to be a catalyst for change – building and strengthening the community through programs that support personal growth and leadership. We strive to be a safe, positive second home where families of diverse culture and experience come together and find equal acceptance, encouragement and challenge. We believe the community must determine its own needs and can meet those needs through a partnership comprising neighborhood residents, staff, volunteers and donors. We encourage respect for self and others and practice three principles of leadership:
1. utilizing peaceful conflict resolution,
2. embracing positive thinking and language and
3. understanding choices and consequences.

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRE)

Founded in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 juvenile diabetes, JDRF has always focused on a single goal—accelerating research progress to cure diabetes and its devastating complications. Usually striking during childhood, this most severe form of the disease annually accounts for almost $100 billion in health care costs in the U.S. alone. Chosen by Barron's as one of only four charities that are leaders in efficiency and effectiveness, more than 80 percent of JDRF’s expenditures directly support research and research-related education.

The Right Angle

Right Angle is an educational foundation which provides financial support for high school students in the inner city. Right Angle sends about 60 high school kids to college summer programs to improve their academic skills and gain exposure to campus life. The majority of these students are from low-income families. Because of this program over 85% of the participating kids go on to 4 year colleges. What makes this so remarkable is that these students come from schools where the percentage of students who go on to 4 year colleges is typically less than 15%.

Ted Fund

While Evanston children sit side-by-side in classrooms during the school year, they spend their summers in very different worlds. Children of the economically advantaged are enrolled in swim lessons, sports camps, drama classes, and other special programs. Their summers are rich with opportunities for fun, self-expression, skill building, and personal development. In contrast, children of families living below the poverty line are often left behind. Nearly one out of every three children in Evanston comes from a family that cannot afford such extras. The Ted Fund addresses this glaring need by leveling the playing field. The Fund enables public school children from families with limited financial resources to take part in quality, fee-based summer camps which other Evanston children take for granted.

The Carol Gollob Foundation for Breast Cancer Research

Established in 1993, is a not-for-profit corporation committed to educating people about breast cancer and to funding research for its detection, prevention and cure. To learn more or to make a donation, please visit their website.
