Corporate Champions play a crucial role in Lurie Children’s ability to provide the best possible medical care for our patients.

As a nonprofit medical center, we rely on philanthropy to make advancements in care, invest in leading-edge research and support families. Through their partnerships with Lurie Children’s, Corporate Champions help lead the way in pediatric healthcare and make it possible for us to create unique programs, expand our facilities and make research discoveries leading to life-transforming cures.

In recognition of this support, Lurie Children’s provides customized and meaningful partnership opportunities—including unique year-round engagement—that help Corporate Champions achieve their business goals while making an impact on kids and families.

Stories of Support

Grosvenor Serveathon

GCM Grosvenor made a generous $1M commitment to support our Access for Every Child fund, helping to ensure that children in under-resourced communities have access to the care provided at Lurie Children’s. “At GCM Grosvenor, supporting the communities where we live and work is vitally important. Through our commitment to Lurie Children’s, our hope is any family will have access to the care they need, when they need it,” said Jon Levin, Lurie Children’s Medical Center Board Member and President, GCM Grosvenor.

This gift came at critically important time as COVID-19 continues to strain our resources and more children need specialized care. “GCM Grosvenor’s gift helps to ensure that every child will receive the care they require; and this is the fundamental value of our Campaign for every child,” said Thomas P Shanley, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer.

iHeartMedia Chicago has a long-standing community partnership with Lurie Children’s,” said Matt Scarano, President of iHeartMedia Chicago. “The services provided to patients and families at Lurie Children’s are known globally, but most importantly, in the Chicagoland community. It is our responsibility to champion Lurie’s efforts and encourage our listeners, advertisers and the community to lend support as well.”

iHeartMedia Chicago’s inaugural Radiothon event raised over $400,000 dollars for Lurie Children’s. On-air personalities Melissa Forman, Robin Rock, Mick Lee, Delilah, Angi Taylor, Walt Flakus and Klinger encouraged listeners to call or donate online to help fuel research, support families in need and provide lifesaving care to children in the community.

Speedway - Miehlke Family with Stephen

Speedway’s partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals began in 1991 and has since raised more than $8 million dollars for Lurie Children’s. In 2020, Speedway raised more than $521,000 and they are set to have a record-breaking year in funds raised for 2021. The majority of funds come from year-long canister collection and pin pad prompts at the point of sale at 179 Speedway locations across the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana area. Seeing an incredible need in our community, Speedway donated 7,000 N95 masks and 3,000 surgical masks to help protect Lurie Children’s medical professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic.
