St. Francis Society

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. - Francis of Assisi

See how St. Francis Society Members are Doing the Impossible!

Inspired by and founded upon the principles of The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis, the St. Francis Society is an Annual Giving donor group formed to help sustain the Mission of OSF Saint Francis Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of Illinois through providing support for the ongoing needs of the hospital. Throughout the years, St. Francis Society members have gone far beyond basic support and have helped lead our organization to achievements previously thought to be impossible. And the work to realize new, extraordinary accomplishments in healthcare continues. As a member of St. Francis Society, you will help our Mission to touch more people and have greater impact than ever before... you will join us in making the impossible possible.
