GRANTS

In a typical year, Women for Evanston Youth supports our community in grant making at the level of $30,000-$40,000. In keeping with the our mission, WEY encourages organizations that support Evanston’s youth to apply.

2022 GRANT UPDATE

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Women for Evanston Youth was unable to hold its major fundraiser last fall. We know that so many of our local non-profit organizations need us more than ever right now, and we hope to offer our grant requests once again in the spring of 2023. We will continue to provide updates, additional information and dates once we have them. Thank you for your understanding.

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.

As a social and philanthropic organization, our members are Evanston women who share a commitment to youth through fundraising and volunteer endeavors.

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%.”
