Support independent local news

If you value Evanston Now and the forum we provide for our community, please become a member. You’ll feel great for helping Evanston’s leading independent, reader-supported news site.

Give monthly

Some other amount


The best way for you to become a member is to make a small automatic contribution every month. (It’s like subscribing to a newspaper in the old days!) It takes less than a minute to set up a monthly donation via PayPal or credit card.

Give once

Any amount


We also appreciate one-time donations of any amount – from five bucks to five figures! It takes just a moment to give via PayPal or credit card.

As a member you'll receive:

  • Two tickets to attend our annual Members' Party.
  • Advance notice of (and discounts to) special events.
  • The sincere thanks of our dedicated team.

Online contributions are easiest for us! But if you'd prefer to give by mail, please write a check to Evanston Now LLC, 1726 Wesley Ave., Evanston, IL 60201. Please include your email address so we can email you free passes to the Members' Party.

Questions about membership? Contact Bill Smith at [email protected] or 847-733-7526. Please note that contributions are not tax-deductible.
