Community Grant Application 2021:

Our community grant application was shortened and simplified this year!

The due date was Friday, March 19th, 2021 and the application window has closed for 2021.

Community Grants applications that were accepted recently were for smaller grants, made in amounts ranging from approximately $1,000 – $3,000. Multiple grants will be awarded this Spring.

With a goal of donating a $100,000 each year until our 100th anniversary, we have picked our first set of grant recipients. These recipients’ mission and vision aligns with the mission and vision of the Junior League of Evanston-Northshore. They have also been hit hard by COVID-19. Below is the list of recipients and the grant amount awarded to them.

  1. Connections for the Homeless Evanston $20K
  2. Turning Point Behavioral Health Skokie $20K
  3. A Safe Place Lake County $10K
  4. Moraine Food Pantry Highland Park $10K
  5. Northfield Food Pantry $10K
  6. PADS Lake County $10K
  7. YWCA Evanston $10K
  8. CASA Lake County $5K
  9. Prairie State Legal Services Waukegan $5K
