Ingalls Development Foundation

In 1922 industrialist Frederick A. Ingalls recognized the need for a place of healing in Harvey, IL and made the lead gift to open a memorial hospital in honor of his wife, Jeanette.

Today, the Ingalls Development Foundation continues to benefit from the two trusts Mr. Ingalls established in memory of his second wife Margaret and daughter Jean Havens. To this day the Margaret Ingalls Memorial Fund and Jean Havens Memorial Fund continue to make distributions in support of Ingalls Memorial Hospital.

That legacy of giving continues thanks to our generous givers whose support provides access in the South Suburbs to world class care in the areas of oncology, cardiology, retina and orthopedics. Please consider making your own contribution to Ingalls through this website, or join us during one or more of our development foundation special events.

Ways to Give

The need for philanthropic support has never been greater or more vital to build upon the clinical excellence of our non-profit community hospital. Continued transformation of the healthcare industry has established a new normal business environment characterized by lower patient admissions, declining reimbursement rates and decreasing government support.

Additional pressure on hospitals to absorb the financial risks associated with managing health outcomes for patient populations presents unique challenges and opportunities for donor support to fund innovative care models and community partnerships.

Consequently, we are pleased to present these gift options for your consideration and welcome the opportunity to have a conversation about a gifting plan that meets your needs.
