About Us

The Evanston Police & Fire Foundation, in concert with the Evanston Police Department and Evanston Fire Department, identifies needed programs, equipment, and technology. EPFF works to raise funds within the community and to create partnerships with local business, residents, and community members to meet the critical needs of our first responders.

EPFF is a 501(c)3 non-profit community group which is based on a public-private partnership model that has proven to be highly effective in metropolitan areas across the United States.
