Your health and safety have always been, and continue to be, our highest priorities. Visit our online resource center to find helpful information from our expert physicians about steps you can take to prevent the spread of the virus and what to do if you suspect you have it.
As Illinois and Wisconsin, along with the rest of the country, experience a second surge of COVID-19, Advocate Aurora Health remains at the forefront of the response. We are grateful to our more than 70,000 physicians, nurses and team members for their heroic efforts to provide our patients and communities with compassionate, safe and quality care during this pandemic.
Donate funds to support our heroes
Our fight against COVID-19 is far from over. The impact across our communities and within our health system is extraordinary as we continue to battle this pandemic. Philanthropy has, and will continue to play, a critical role throughout the response, enabling Advocate Aurora leadership to procure and deploy resources in real time.
This surge has certainly placed a demand on our resources – none more pronounced than on our human resources, which is why we are prioritizing team members’ well-being and resiliency. We know the pressure our frontline heroes undertake every day can be overwhelming and, with the help of philanthropy, we have put programs in place to help them manage their stress and anxiety. We also have a Team Member Crisis Fund to assist team members who are financially impacted by COVID-19.
As always, 100% of your gift will be used for this purpose. We’re so grateful to everyone who has already donated.
Some heroes wear capes. Our heroes wear scrubs. Thank you from Advocate Aurora Health.

While we are not accepting donations of supplies, food or beverages at this time, if you have other ways to support our doctors, nurses and team members, complete this form and provide as much detail about your donation/offer as possible. We are grateful for all offers of support but need to make sure the safety of our community and our physicians, nurses and team members remain our top priority.
All submissions will be reviewed, and a member of the Advocate Charitable Foundation will follow up in regard to next steps.
Our patients and communities need our help to replenish the blood centers that serve our hospitals. In response to COVID-19, more than 80% of community blood drives have been cancelled, however all blood types will continue to be in demand now and in the weeks and months ahead. The American Red Cross will support our patient’s needs and they have established a COVID-19 screening process, social distancing precautions and cleaning protocols to keep donors safe.
