IBJI CARES Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Illinois Bone & Joint Institute, announces the opening of applications for our 2023 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," states Dr. Vanessa Yee, PT, DPT, Physical Therapist, IBJI CARES Chairperson. "This year, we would again love to partner with an organization where we can be involved in multiple ways. We have many employees who are eager to volunteer and help give back to our communities all over the Chicagoland area."

 

Through various efforts including the annual IBJI CARES Golf Outing, the largest fundraiser of the organization, the selected 2023 partner will work closely with the CARES board to align charitable needs with resources that include volunteerism and funding.

Former partners have included the Northbrook-based Glenkirk organization and Good News Partners' New Life Shelter in Chicago.

In 2022, Glenkirk organization benefited from new technology and landscaping at residential homes for intellectually and developmentally disabled individuals.

Local organizations are invited to fill out the application form on or before Friday, October 21, 2022.
