Community-Wide Evanston Giving Raises Money to Benefit Hurricane Survivors

Give for the Gulf was a month-long, Evanston-based fundraiser series to benefit the survivors of the 2017 Hurricane Season. The fundraising efforts have spurred a larger Evanston community effort, with a corresponding Facebook page, called Evanston Giving. Partners, sponsors, and corporate matches have joined forces to make a meaningful impact on the survivors of the 2017 hurricanes.

The Give for the Gulf fundraiser is supported by Hagerty Consulting Inc., Northwestern University, the City of Evanston, Downtown Evanston, the Main/Dempster Mile, the Rotary Foundation, Accuity, Grumman/Butkus Associates, Multilingual Connections, and the Saint Athanasius Parish, as well as other Evanston organizations.

Participants in the wider community effort have included Smiley Brothers Brewing Co., Ayla’s Originals, Cyclebar, Pure Barre, MedPoint, Shaker Traditions, Evanston Float Center, Secret Treasures Antiques, Soapies, Cultivate Urban Rainforest, Stumble & Relish, Few, and Good’s Fine Picture Framing.

These community efforts have already raised more than $10,000. Each event donated a percentage of the proceeds to three charities directly involved in relief efforts, and all donations made at the event will be matched by partners, including Hagerty Consulting, Grumman/Butkus Associates, and Multilingual Connections, to maximize impact.

The hurricanes that have affected various communities in the south and southeastern United States have changed the lives of many. Any support – from participating in these events or working alongside the team as a corporate sponsor – will serve as a force multiplier and create hope for survivors. “Recovery won’t end after a week, and neither will Evanston’s support of these communities,” said Hagerty Consulting Inc. Founder and Evanston Mayor Steve Hagerty.
