Support for the Evanston Women’s History Project comes in two ways: donations to the Evanston History Center Annual Appeal for general operating expenses and gifts to the Joan Barr Smith Endowment for Women’s History for long-term support.

In its initial phase, the EWHP was generously supported by partnering organizations and individual donors to the Evanston Community Foundation’s Fund for Women and Girls.
