VNA Foundation Seeks Letter of Intent for Services Benefiting Chicago's Medically Underserved

VNA Foundation was founded in 1890 as the Visiting Nurse Association of Chicago, an organization that employed its own nurses and other health professionals to provide health care to the underprivileged. In 1995, VNA transitioned to a grantmaking foundation and began awarding financial support to nonprofit organizations offering home- and community-based care to the underserved.

The VNA Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent from nonprofit organizations for home- and community-based healthcare services that address the needs of the medically underserved in the metro Chicago region.


The foundation awards program, operating, and capital grants. Priority is given to programs in which care is provided by nurses.

To be considered for a grant, organizations must have 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service and work to benefit the medically underserved in Cook, Lake, McHenry, DuPage, Kane, and Will counties.

Letters of Intent must be received no later than March 15, 2018. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application no later than April 19, 2018.

Program guidelines and application instructions as well as information about past grant recipients are available on the VNA Foundation website.


Deadline: January 26, 2018
