THE WOMAN’S CLUB OF EVANSTON NOW ACCEPTING GRANT APPLICATIONS
Since 1889, The Woman’s Club of Evanston (WCE) has had a proud history of helping support organizations that make a difference in our community. The mission of our club is to advance philanthropic, educational, cultural and umanitarian principles and activities, to assist organizations dedicated to such purposes and to offer opportunities for women to share common interests and concerns. In 2011, members of our group donated more than 5,000 volunteer hours of direct service to the community and raised more than $120,000 for charitable causes.
Each year nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations in Evanston and surrounding communities are invited to submit grant applications to The Woman’s Club of Evanston. This year we are directing our resources to support programs
and organizations that provide assistance to teens in crisis and their caregivers. Areas of need may include the following: victims of violence, teen pregnancy,
mental health, legal support, and substance abuse.
