Community Memorial Foundation aims to measurably improve the health of those who live and work in the western suburbs of Chicago. Through partnership with our grantee organizations and other community stakeholders, we manage a grantmaking portfolio that includes our Regional Health and Human Services Agenda, Responsive Grants Program and Building Organizational Effectiveness Program.
The Community Health Worker pilot, jointly supported with Healthy Communities Foundation, aims to improve access to culturally competent care and advance health equity in the region.
The Year 3 outcomes report highlights how the CHWs are building towards impact in the Western Suburbs.
We are not just grantmakers; we aspire to be changemakers. Through our funding initiatives, we empower organizations to address issues that impact overall community wellness, including healthcare, health equity, food access, housing and public safety.
Grantee partners are invited to participate in a monthly online gathering to discuss the application of racial equity principles within their organization.
