The Evanston Community Foundation is committed to investing in initiatives that prioritize BIPOC* voices and promote equity in the community. Through our strategic investments, we aim to create a more inclusive and vibrant Evanston that celebrates diversity.
* ECF uses the term BIPOC to highlight the unique history of oppression and continual, systemic discrimination that Black and Indigenous people experience within a U.S. context. These systems, built on white supremacy culture, impact all People of Color. As such, ECF prioritizes organizations led by and/or centered on the voices of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian community members, and those impacted by multiple intersectional systems of oppression.
