About Us

The Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park is an independent 501 (c)(3) charitable organization that was established when Highland Park Hospital merged with Evanston Hospital. The mission of the Foundation is simple– it was founded to support healthcare in the geographic area served by Highland Park Hospital. At the time of the merger, it was the consensus that funds be set aside that would be reinvested in the community to benefit the health and well-being of our residents.

Funds are prioritized to support smaller not-for-profit organizations and service programs that directly benefit at risk residents of Highland Park and Highwood. Grants are earmarked for 12 months targeting specific programs that support unmet physical and mental healthcare services. They are not given to fund capital projects, equipment purchases, research, or to be used by an organization as a grant to another organization or individual.

To avoid duplication of services and increase the potential impact of the HFHP, we encourage grant recipients to work together to maximize their goals and not duplicate services. The HFHP prides itself in the significant role it plays to safeguard excellence in available healthcare.
