Support Greater Elgin Family Care Center this Giving Tuesday

Greater Elgin Family Care Center (GEFCC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving the medically uninsured, underinsured and publicly insured residents of Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Kane and McHenry counties.

GEFCC is a Federally Qualified Health Center which, in the most-recent 12-month period, provided a full range of quality, affordably-priced primary care services to almost 50,000 different persons via over 160,000 medical and dental appointments.

Your support this Giving Tuesday will help us provide services to more families in need.

  • 1. $100 will give a new mom the baby essentials she needs for her newborn in a GEFCC Baby Bag. The bag includes diapers, wipes, nursery kit, baby book, baby clothes and baby thermometer. Every year, our practitioners deliver more than 800 babies at 5 area hospitals. Our new moms face many economic challenges and receiving these newborn essentials will be a great help.
  • 2. $50 will give a dental exam and cleaning to an uninsured adult patient. Our Dental Clinic is one of the few that provide affordable dental health services to uninsured adults. Good dental health is key for good overall health.
  • 3. $25 will give a lifesaving cervical cancer screening to a woman at risk. Each year, more than 13,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and over 4,000 die from this disease. Regular screenings will save womens’ lives.


To make this Giving Tuesday even better, the Grand Victoria Foundation will match up to $4,000 of online donations received on Giving Tuesday.
