The Rotary Club of Evanston’s charitable fund was originally established to support Youth Days, an Evanston event that no longer exists. Over the years, the purpose of the Charitable Fund has broadened, and each year we take our focus from Rotary International’s theme for the year.

Our focus this year for our Community Grants is Building a Healthier Evanston.
We are looking to provide grants to unique organizations and programs that desire or want to continue to: 1) provide nutrition or wellness education, 2) provide other programs promoting healthy living and eating habits, or 3) provide nutritional food.

Please consider applying for a grant in the amount of $500 – $2,500 if your organization and its current or proposed programs align with the above criteria.

The grant application is available here at, (see links on that page) or by emailing Grant applications must be submitted by Friday, February 25, 2011.
