The Evanston City Council voted this week not to legally pursue the money that CARE raised during a fundraising campaign, Evanston Now reports.
The city ended its relationship with CARE earlier this year. Talks recently broke down between the two parties over CARE's nearly $1.3 million in assets.
The aldermen decided against going after the funds raised because CARE did not fundraise exclusively for the building fund, the Evanston Now article says, making it difficult to say if that’s what all donors wanted the money to go toward.
The council voted unanimously to provide information to the Illinois Attorney General’s Office in its investigation into CARE’s finances.
