Philanthropic contributions to Evanston

Today—and for more than a hundred years—Women for Evanston Youth'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.

Women for Evanston Youth accepts grant requests from community organizations supporting Evanston youth programs. Please submit your request by April 30, 2024.

 

In your proposal, please include the following:

  • Specific needs of your request

  • The number of children that the grant will impact

  • Your organization's 501c3 status

  • Names of your Board of Directors

 

Send your grant request to:

Barb Egofske, 2754 Lawndale Ave., Evanston, IL 60201 or submit yours online.

 

We will finalize our grant recipients in early June.

FEATURED GRANTEE

Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse

[WEY'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%.”
