JCF created the NICU Transportation Program to partner with hospitals and alleviate the transportation expenses of all families, while their child is in the NICU by providing parking and CTA/Metra vouchers. The programs are fully funded by JCF. Currently, the foundation's program benefits the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. All funds raised by the Prentice NICU Team will go towards launching a NICU Transportation Program at the Northwestern Prentice NICU. Jackson Chance Foundation is an Illinois nonprofit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization.
