Free & Charitable Clinics Month

Gaps in our healthcare system still remain – and free and charitable clinics are working hard to help fill those gaps.

In August 2020 the Association spearheaded Illinois’ sixth annual Free and Charitable Clinics Month to tell our communities the critical and vital role clinics in the safety net health care system in Illinois.

We used this month to reach potential new patients, let existing donors know that their contributions remain needed and valuable, and increase recognition from local elected officials. This year, we hosted our first-ever webinar covering COVID-19 and The Vital Role of Free and Charitable Clinics, which you can view here.

We are looking forward to Free and Charitable Clinics Month 2021 to continue promoting the work you do and spreading awareness of the amazing mission of our sector.

If you have any questions about participating in Free and Charitable Clinics month next year, please do not hesitate to contact our Executive Director, Melissa Maguire (

Together, we can expand our impact, creatively implement new ideas, and work together to build the sector.
