$15 million donation from Ted Schwartz to City of Hope
Chicago businessman Ted Schwartz recently gave $15 million through the Schwartz Ward Family Foundation to support immunotherapy research and to advance treatment options that could improve the quality of life for people living with cancer.
Schwartz founded Schwartz Capital Group, a Chicago investment firm, in 1996. He also started APAC Customer Services; a customer-service outsourcing company now called Expert Global Solutions.
He is a City of Hope patient and cancer survivor who achieved complete remission in 2020 after a 16-year battle with lymphoma.
The Schwartz & Ward families support outcomes-driven philanthropic organizations that have a positive impact on society.
Current areas of focus include education, Jewish life and history, and medical research.
