i am because we are

Ubuntu is a South African Bantu term often translated as "I am because we are." Ubuntu’s principles center unity, compassion, humanity, and community at the forefront of creating a just society. This is our hope for a more vibrant and inclusive Evanston. One where each of us contribute our time, talents, and treasures to make Evanston a more just, vibrant, and inclusive place to live for all.

your support has immediate impact

When our community comes together in unity and humanity, there is no limit to what we can accomplish. Evanston is home to some of the world's smartest minds and change agents. We are stronger together when we combine our collective resources, knowledge, and neighborly love to solve problems and spark change.

Thanks to your support of the Now! Fund, ECF has been able to create and invest in community-led solutions for issues surrounding food insecurity, homelessness, early childhood development, and racial equity to name a few. 

We are calling on you, our community, to make a gift to support the Now! Fund today.
