Evanston Community Foundation since 1986.
we're here for good
2016 marked Evanston Community Foundation's 30th year of doing great things together in the Evanston community. Our thirty-year trajectory has included public projects and programs as well as behind the scenes work to grow and build sustainability.
As we recognize all that the Foundation has accomplished we take a meaningful step forward looking into our future. WE'RE HERE FOR GOOD — we are holistically responsive to Evanston, collaborating in times of challenge and celebration leading change for you.
