Evanston Community Foundation

The Evanston Community Foundationwas established in 1986 under the auspices of the Evanston United Way. As envisioned by its founders, the Foundation would be a new source of funding for the Evanston community, providing grants for emerging organizations, seed money for new projects, and support for creative ideas and initiatives for the good of the community.
