The Eleanor Wood-Prince Grant Initiative: A Project of The Woman’s Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital helps fund leading-edge research studies, novel patient care initiatives or innovative management projects at Northwestern Medicine. Since the inception of the Eleanor Wood-Prince Grant Initiative in 2001, over $1.7 million has been awarded to 78 grant recipients as part of this competitive Woman’s Board grant process. The results of this initial research have been instrumental in earning millions in additional research funding through the NIH and other sources and in furthering the advancement of medical science and patient care.
The Evergreen Invitational Grants: Hosted by MK Pritzker and The Woman’s Board of Northwestern Memorial Hospital every two years between 2010 and 2016, the Evergreen Invitational was 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.
