Partner with us to make Evanston a strong and welcoming home For Now, Forever, and For Everyone. No matter how you invest, your partnership supports a stronger Evanston that is more vibrant, inclusive, and equitable for all.

As we celebrate 35 years of community change, ECF prepares to step boldly into our next chapter—a chapter in which we vigorously challenge an unjust world, head first. Now is the time for all of us to renew and deepen our commitment to the Evanston community and for the Foundation to serve as a leader in achieving positive change. You can help us invest in the immediate work of the Foundation this year, and we can focus your investments in spaces and places that will have the greatest impact.

The Evanston Community Foundation is a 501c3, tax-exempt organization. Our federal tax id is 36-3466802.

Thanks for your support!
