Independent foundation






Established in 2002 in IL - ILCHF was created in December 2002 through the settlement of an action of the State of Illinois Attorney General's Office with a group of Illinois insurance carriers. This action, and an approximately $125 million dollar settlement, established Illinois' only private foundation focused solely on the health needs of children across the state

Purpose and Activities

The foundation (ILCHF) has a single mission: to ensure that every child in Illinois has the opportunity to grow up healthy. As such, its grant making is designed to close the gap between children who have access to care and those who are underserved. At the current time, ILCHF focuses its giving in two focus areas: 1) improving the oral health of children; and 2) addressing the mental health needs of children, specifically through system of care modeling. In addition, the foundation monitors emerging and other compelling health issues that the board of directors may select as focus areas in the future.
