The Evanston Community Foundation seeks a level playing field for all. Everyone’s potential counts, so we back many local organizations in pursuing their missions. And, increasingly, the Foundation’s own ventures work across sector lines to accelerate change at a systemic level. Evanston’s future starts with what we do today!
WHAT does the Foundation do? ECF builds permanent endowments so Evanston can count on steadily growing resources to meet our challenges, seize opportunities, and realize our potential. We ask questions and seek answers — we help lead Evanston where it wants to go.
