why does it matter?

ECF uses the power of philanthropy to shine a light on promising solutions and respond to immediate needs. Evanston's future starts with what we do today!

WHAT does the Foundation do? We ask questions and seek answers, helping lead Evanston where it wants to go. ECF builds permanent endowments, generating resources to meet community challenges, seize opportunities, and realize Evanston's potential.
