Otho S. A. Sprague Memorial Institute
The Otho S. A. Sprague Memorial Institute was founded in 1911 as a non-profit foundation with a mandate to pursue "the investigation of the cause of disease and the prevention and relief of human suffering in the City of Chicago, County of Cook, State of Illinois." The Institute’s early program of research focused on cancer, the effects of chemotherapy on tuberculosis, industrial diseases and the metabolism of carbohydrates affecting diabetes. For more than a century, The Institute's self-perpetuating volunteer Board always has included the City’s health and civic leaders whose fiscal prudence and programmatic vision have maintained it as a philanthropy attuned to current needs, while staying true to the founder’s intent ...investigation of the causes of disease and the prevention and relief of human suffering in the City of Chicago. SUHI appreciates The Institute’s support that enabled CROWD’s expansion efforts.
Telligen Community Initiative
The mission of the Telligen Community Initiative (TCI) is "to initiate and support innovative and forward-looking health-related projects aimed at improving health, social well-being, and educational attainment." They work toward this mission through "grant-making programs, both community responsive and intentional/initiated support, innovative healthcare workforce development programming and support, support efforts to raise the capacity of organizations doing work within their strategic priority areas, and by extending the influence of their resources by leveraging and aligning with other when possible to further their mission to benefit the underserved and vulnerable". SUHI is grateful for TCI’s generous support that enabled the launching of CROWD.
