Events at a Glance

As the largest nonprofit hospice in Illinois, we rely on fundraising to cover approximately $1.5 million in uncompensated care that we provide annually. This includes our pediatric palliative program, our community grief support and our charity care. It also includes a dozen clinicians who provide direct patient care for which we receive no insurance benefit. These are all essential parts of the unwavering guidance and support Lightways provides.

In the last six months, we have been working to reimagine and revamp Lightways’ fundraising program. Our slate of events for 2023 is below. Please consider supporting these events.
