Seventeen of Evanston’s youth-focused community organizations received grants from Women for Evanston Youth in June.
The grants, totaling $40,000, continue WEY’s decades-long philanthropic support of youth- and child-focus facilities and groups in the community. Grant applications were accepted through April; WEY presented the checks to the organizations in June.
Recipients for 2023 are:

YMCA
For more than a hundred years, WEY has supported a wide range of organizations and programs serving Evanston’s youth. The primary source of WEY’s grant funding comes from Fortnightly Dance Classes which the group, formerly known as the North End Mother’s Club, has sponsored since 1917.
