Dear Friends,

Welcome to our valued supporters of the Children’s Service Board!

Whether you have attended our events for years or have recently been introduced to our mission, we thank you for your interest in the Children’s Service Board (“CSB”) and our goal to provide critical resources for high-quality healthcare for the children of Chicago, surrounding communities, and across the country.

The CSB, which is a leading affiliated philanthropic organization of Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, is comprised of committed women from diverse backgrounds who share a passion for the hospital’s mission to provide world-class and compassionate care to all children. Our membership includes many mothers whose own children have been impacted by Lurie Children’s.

For 2024 and 2025, the board has committed to raise $2 million to help facilitate the grow of the Hematology, Oncology, and Stem Cell Transplant Fellowship Program. Lurie Children’s three-year Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation Fellowship Program trains the medical leaders of tomorrow who will revolutionize care and make life better for children with cancer and blood disorders. Fellows are at the front line of our patients’ care team, receive protected research time, and are able to collaborate across the medical center campus.

Currently, Lurie Children’s has three new fellows a year. With your support, we will increase the fellowship program to four slots annually with the addition of a named Children’s Service Board Fellow. This new fellow will help meet the demands with our high clinical volume.

For those who have not previously been familiar with the CSB, I encourage you to reach out and find ways to engage with this remarkable group of women. Thank you to our generous sponsors and donors, our dedicated board members, and our retail and vendor partners. We are profoundly grateful to all of you for your generosity and enthusiasm for our mission and the mission of Lurie Children’s.

Fondly,

Danielle Hoeg
