2021 marked VNA Foundation’s 25th year as a grantmaker. Since 1996, we have partnered with metro Chicago’s nonprofit agencies to provide services right in the homes and communities of those most in need.
VNA Foundation awards grants to support nonprofit home- and community-based healthcare and health services for medically underserved populations. VNA grants generally fit within one or more of the following categories, although we will consider applications that fall outside these categories while still meeting our guidelines. The majority of our grants are made to Chicago-based entities, but we also provide funding throughout Cook County and the surrounding collar counties (Lake, McHenry, DuPage, Kane and Will).
