NCW Fire Relief Fund
For information on resources or to support the 2015 Chelan Valley and Okanogan Complex fires, please click here.
On July 18, 2014, the Community Foundation of NCW established its first Fire Relief Fund to support families and individuals affected by the Carlton Complex fires.
We continue to work with other relief funders along with our regional nonprofit partners to effectively serve the victims in helping them rebuild their lives.
How You Have Helped
The Community Foundation invested $100,000 from our general fund to employ Disaster Case Managers that work one-on-one with fire victims to help them navigate resources and options, such as financial aid, housing, and other important needs.
We continue to work closely with the case managers as they determine needs for victims and collaborate with other funding agencies to ensure fair and equitable disbursement of your donations.
This kind of disaster recovery can take months, even years. The NCW Fire Relief Fund was established to ensure that resources are available for the long haul, and that people get the help they need to get back on their feet.
100% of your contribution has gone toward helping those affected by the fires – we do not take administrative fees on relief funds.
The foundation is a tax-exempt public charity, so you will receive a tax-deductible receipt with your contribution. Our Federal ID number is 91-1349486.
They Still Need Your Help
We are still working with case managers to serve those affected by the Carlton Complex fires. Gifts to the fund may also help other wildfire relief efforts in the region.
