EDGE is our employee giving philanthropic and engagement program. Since 1989, Ingalls employees have contributed nearly $4 million to support Ingalls Development Foundation (IDF) events, hospital programs and scholarships. Donations also support important clinical programs including oncology, our cardiology and retina care, the Healthy Baby Network and much more. Our EDGE employee giving philanthropic and engagement program is overseen by a dedicated committee of active EDGE members working in partnership with IDF.
All EDGE members have opportunities to participate in volunteer activities that benefit our patients and community. Finally, all EDGE members who contribute a minimum $3 per pay period, qualify for monthly cash drawings, including our year-end Jackpot drawing pulled live during the Annual Benefit Gala! However, giving at any level is important and appreciated. There is no gift too small as every donation helps.
If you would like to participate, please click here to contact Maria Perez or by phone at 708.915.6169.
Annually the Ingalls Development Foundation partners with the Thornton Township School District #205 to help launch the college careers of high school seniors pursuing healthcare related professions. Up to five recipients are selected from the graduating class. Since inception, nearly $300,000 in scholarship awards have benefited more than 160 students.
