Up to $5,000 is available to Methow Valley nonprofits to support programs, special projects, start-up funding, and other community needs and enhancements.
Established in 2011, the Woods Family Music and Arts Fund was created to enhance the music and arts culture of the Wenatchee Valley through nonprofit organizations who work to provide music and/or arts related services. The grant funds up $5,000 for programs that foster and improve cultural awareness and education, support music performance, provide music education direction, participate in regional arts events, and workshops/seminars for music educators and professionals.
The grant will be shared equally by the After School Programs at Columbia Elementary, Mission View Elementary, Orchard Middle School, and Pioneer Middle School. A total of 60 students (15 from each school) will participate in a six-week long “Learn to Skate” program, which includes instruction and skate rental.
The Community Foundation of NCW and the Icicle Fund invite nonprofit board volunteers to a complimentary dinner to celebrate your dedication and leadership of nonprofit work in your community. You can choose one of two beautiful locations for a fun evening of fabulous food and great company!
The foundation received double the amount of grant requests than usual, making the grant more competitive. With a recent $40,000 gift from an anonymous donor from The Seattle Foundation, an additional $20,000 in grants was awarded.
For Good. For Ever.
We grow, protect, and connect charitable gifts in support of strong communities.
The Community Foundation of NCW is for people who care about making this part of the world a more wonderful place to live, to learn, to work and raise family. Established in 1986, your foundation attracts and manages charitable gifts from a broad range of people for the long-term benefit of Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties. Our motivation is simple: no one knows exactly what North Central Washington’s needs will be in 20, 50 or 100 years, yet we believe that tomorrow’s local leaders will need substantial charitable resources to respond adequately to the issues of the day. Your chartiable investment helps to build a permanent endowment that will shape our NCW communities for good, for ever.
