A legacy of giving back

Since the very first dollar was donated more than 100 years ago, the legacy of giving back to support excellence in health care and compassionate service in our community has been strong. SwedishAmerican Health Foundation (SAHF) continues that tradition today.

When you give to SAHF, you are supporting local projects and initiatives that are life-changing for people in our community. Every dollar you donate here stays here, so we can invest in world-class facilities and services that meet and exceed the needs of our patients in the Northern Illinois/Rockford region.
