North Shore Health Care Foundation
The NSHCF proactively identifies opportunities to expand equitable health care and healthy living in Cook County and champions solutions through funding, education, and advocacy.
NOTE FOR 2019 :  New flexible grant dates are in the works. Email to if you are condsidering sending an application.

Grants are awarded quarterly to qualified health care providers for  medical equipment, education and training. The North Shore Health Care Golf Scramble at Superior National in Lutsen is in October each year, and the proceeds are dedicated to grants. The June BBQ at Gunflint Lodge supports the endowment fund which is managed by the Minnesota Philanthropy Partners. An educational conference or expo is offered free to the community each year. We also provide Health Care Directive forms (Honoring Choices), and a newsletter, "The North Shore Health Care News." Since 2007 an active program to develop enhanced end of life care has been a focus of the foundation, which resulted in the creation of Care Partners of Cook County. The Oral Health Task Force was created to provide dental care to children of Cook County and the Grand Portage Reservation. Local donors have provided funds for cancer patients to receive stipends for travel expenses. By becoming a member or making a gift or a bequest, you can help all of this work continue.
Please consider making a health care directive!  For more information, click here.
