The Matthew Hill Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit which was founded in 2015. The goal behind the organization is to raise cancer awareness as well as funds for cancer research, prevention, and education. Our major fundraiser is No-Shave November which has been a tradition for many years. It wasn’t until the fall of 2009 that members of the Chicagoland Hill family decided to use it to raise money for charity. It was a project that held special meaning to the eight Hill children after their father, Matthew Hill, passed away from colon cancer in November 2007. Since then, it has grown beyond any expectations and is a household name. You may read the full story on our website.
