Additional Descriptor






Established in 2000 in IL; converted from MacNeal Memorial Hospital; changed its name to The Arthur Foundation in 2006 - The Arthur Foundation (formerly the MacNeal Health Foundation) is committed to the tradition of community service first established by Dr. Arthur MacNeal at the turn of the 20th century.

Purpose and Activities

The foundation aims to improve the health of the community by supporting accessible, affordable and appropriate health services to vulnerable populations. The foundation recognizes that actual health care or health related service is only one of the factors determining the health status of individuals and families of these same communities. The health of the people is also determined by the educational status of its people, especially its youth. Therefore, the foundation will also consider grant requests that foster and improve education and educational opportunities for the citizens of the area it seeks to serve.
