Philanthropic Contributions to Evanston
Today—and for more than a hundred years—the North End Mothers' Club’s ongoing mission is to support organizations who serve the youth of our community. In our centennial year 2011, we awarded more than $40,000 to various youth and child focused facilities and groups in Evanston. The primary source of our funds is the Fortnightly Dance Classes which NEMC has sponsored since 1917.
As a social and philanthropic organization, NEMC's members are Evanston women who share a commitment to youth through fundraising and volunteer endeavors.
If your organization would like to be considered for NEMC’s community giving program, please follow these steps:
Postmarked no later than April 30 each year, we require a letter stating the amount of the grant you are requesting, as well as a brief statement of how this money will directly support youth-oriented services or programming.
We expect that our awards will be made no later than June 30.
Mail or email your request to:

Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse
NEMC’s grant helped ERW market its programs to moms and kids. “We want to help kids think about buildings and deconstruction and landfills,” says Executive Director Aina Gutierrez. Forty percent of what goes in landfills comes from demolition and construction, she says. “You can recycle most of a house. Reuse 20%. Throw out 5%.”
