In late 2012, the Foundation granted more than $18 million, the largest grants in its history. The funding ranged from $500,000 to make the Kosair Charities Children’s Peace Center at Our Lady of Peace more kid-friendly to a $5 million investment to create a hybrid operating room and Resuscitation Center at Jewish Hospital.
