Community Initiatives
Evanston Community Rapid Response Fund Donate The Evanston Community Rapid Response Fund was launched in March to foster a unified response to the impact of Covid-19 on our community. Due to the incredible support of donors across Evanston and beyond, total grants of $4 million have been distributed. These grants are providing for the immediate needs of our neighbors most at risk during the crisis, while also investing in collective and enduring systems, supporting our nonprofits, and preparing for recovery.
