Planned Giving - Legacy of Hope

Donor Newsletter Signup

Welcome to the Legacy of Hope planned giving website for the Children's Hospital of Illinois Foundation. Legacy of Hope is the planned giving program for OSF HealthCare that supports the entire OSF Ministry, including Children’s Hospital of Illinois. Through Legacy of Hope, your planned gift represents your own legacy while providing critical future support to any area of your passion at Children's Hospital of Illinois. A planned gift is as unique as you are. It can be as simple and meaningful as a bequest in your Will, or as creative as a charitable gift annuity that provides life income for you now, and support for our smallest patients the years to come.
