More than 2,000 individuals, corporations, foundations and organizations make gifts to us each year, enabling CHI Memorial to expand programs, offer educational services and purchase innovative medical equipment. Founded in 2001, the CHI Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which operates exclusively to steward philanthropic gifts for CHI Memorial.
