YWCA Campaign for the Future

Rendering of campus in 2022
Our campus in 2021!

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.

Why now?

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?
