Champaign-Urbana - Carle Foundation Hospital

Location Header Area

Greatest Need 

When an unrestricted donation is made to Carle, we make sure those dollars make a meaningful impact on the health of those we serve. Unrestricted gifts make it possible to provide assistance wherever the need is greatest at Carle.

Women’s Legacy Circle

Women’s Legacy Circle is a grassroots giving circle hosted by Carle Health Center for Philanthropy. The premise is simple: Members commit to an annual donation and then – through a member-directed grant review and voting process – together decide which healthcare-related projects to fund at Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana. Membership in the Women’s Legacy Circle is currently limited to our Champaign-Urbana location.
