In a typical year, NEMC supports our community in grant making at the level of $30,000-$40,000. In keeping with the Club’s mission, NEMC encourages organizations that support Evanston’s youth to apply.
2021 GRANT UPDATE
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the North End Mothers’ Club was unable to hold its major fundraiser this fall, Fortnightly dance classes. Without this source of donations, we do not have the funds to distribute back to the community in our local grant request process. We know that so many of our local non-profit organizations need us more than ever right now, and we hope to offer our grant requests once again in the spring of 2022. We will continue to provide updates, additional information and dates once we have them. Thank you for your understanding.
Philanthropic contributions to Evanston
Today—and for more than a hundred years—the North End Mothers' Club’s ongoing mission is to support organizations who serve the youth of our community. In our centennial year 2011, we awarded more than $40,000 to various youth and child focused facilities and groups in Evanston. The primary source of our funds is the Fortnightly Dance Classes which NEMC has sponsored since 1917.
As a social and philanthropic organization, NEMC's members are Evanston women who share a commitment to youth through fundraising and volunteer endeavors.
Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse
NEMC’s grant helped ERW market its programs to moms and kids. “We want to help kids think about buildings and deconstruction and landfills,” says Executive Director Aina Gutierrez. Forty percent of what goes in landfills comes from demolition and construction, she says. “You can recycle most of a house. Reuse 20%. Throw out 5%.”
