The primary focus of the Masonic Family Health Foundation is to honor and carry forward the Masonic commitment to the health of the community. The Foundation utilizes its resources to further the health care, charitable, educational and scientific purposes of the Medical Center as envisioned by its original Masonic founders. It pursues these goals through creation of new programs, support of existing programs, campus improvements and the provision of charity care. The Foundation underwrites valuable programs and services unable to sustain themselves without financial assistance. In addition, the Foundation is committed to sharing its resources by supporting the Masonic Assistance Program and other charities which best exemplify this legacy of the hospital?s founding Masons.
A secondary mission of the Masonic Family Health Foundation is to support Masonic charities and other charities which best exemplify Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center's legacy of community service
