Roseland Foundation

Your Gift Builds New Health Care Programs And Places To Provide Them

Philanthropy has an impact like no other gesture. It gives hope to patients and helps take health care in our community to a whole new level.

At Roseland Community Hospital, philanthropy is a part of our heritage and our future. Charitable giving will help us realize our vision – to be a world class innovator providing exceptional patient care and research.


There are many ways to support RCH. Gifts may be unrestricted in use, or you may specify that your gift be targeted to a particular program or purpose. Some people use annual giving to support the ongoing needs of the organization while others use gift planning to leave a legacy to Roseland or to make major gifts to the institution during their lifetime. Of course, volunteering at RCH lets you share your time and talent with our patients and community.

Charitable giving helps enhance patient services, provides advanced training for our talented healthcare professionals and brings not only essential but unique and specialized services to Roseland that otherwise might not be possible. However you choose to give, you can be assured that your generosity will help to secure the future of this institution.

The Roseland Community Hospital Foundation is an IRS 501c3 non-profit organization, recognized in the State of Illinois as a public charity. As such, gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Please consider joining our mission by making a gift in support of community-based health care.
