Evergreen Invitational Grants Initiative

Hosted by MK Pritzker and The Woman's Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the Evergreen Invitational is a premier event that brings the excitement and pageantry of equestrian Grand Prix show jumping to the greater Chicagoland area. Proceeds from the event support world-class women's health programs at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and its community partners.

Since its inception, funds raised by the Evergreen Invitational have been granted to support 82 projects and programs bringing new, innovative healthcare ideas to Northwestern Memorial Healthcare, totaling $4.3 million. Each of these initiatives has helped advance the patient – centered mission of the Evergreen Invitational, offering solutions that will improve both accessibility and healthcare outcomes for women of all ages.
