Applications Now Open

IBJI CARES Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Illinois Bone & Joint Institute, announces the opening of applications for our 2024 Charity Partner. Through a partnership with IBJI, the chosen local charitable organization will be the recipient of a year’s worth of fundraising efforts. 

“Every year, we try to expand our reach and give back to different parts of the Chicagoland area,” states physical therapist and IBJI CARES Chairperson Vanessa Yee, PT, DPT. “IBJI is growing rapidly around the area, and we want to give back to the communities where we are located. We have many employees who are eager to volunteer and help give back to our communities all over the area.”

Through various efforts including the annual IBJI CARES Golf Outing, the largest fundraiser of the organization, the selected 2024 partner will work closely with the CARES board to align charitable needs with resources that include volunteerism and funding. 

  • This year's fundraiser featured a variety of memorable keepsakes, including signed photos and memorabilia.

  • More than 130 supporters gathered at Topgolf to support Over the Rainbow, our 2023 charity partner.

Former partners have included Over the Rainbow, Glenkirk, and Good News Partners’ New Life Shelter in Chicago.

Local organizations are invited to fill out the application form on or before Friday, September 29, 2023.
