YWCA Campaign for the Future
In 2019, YWCA Evanston/North Shore embarked on an $18.5 million capital campaign to launch our next phase of growth and service to our communities. To date, we’ve raised $17 million from lead donors. Now we’re asking our broader community to help us cross the finish line.
Since 1931, YWCA Evanston/North Shore has been a force for social justice in northeastern Chicagoland. Empowering women and eliminating racism is our mission and the heart of what we do. With a strong record of community impact and a steady pace of growth, we are now poised to do more and become more for our communities.
We are building a new campus that will reflect both our history and our future. It will feature a four-story family support center and tech-enhanced program spaces, all anchored by a renovated aquatics center that preserves the quality and excellence of our historic swim program. We invite you to join us as we imagine, invest and innovate to build the future that our communities need and deserve.
What matters most to you?
Building Hope for Survivors
The new YWCA Family Support Center will double our capacity, promote healing and wellness, and foster independence, safety, and community.
Building Economic Advancement
New training spaces will increase our ability to help women develop the skills they need to build financial security and stability.
Building Racial and Gender Equity
Our Equity work continues to grow exponentially, fueling the need for more space to convene and consult.
Since 1931, YWCA Evanston/North Shore has been a leading champion for women and children in our communities. Almost 90 years later, we still are.
