Individuals, families, businesses, and private foundations find many reasons to use the Community Foundation to carry out their charitable plans. We have several typs of flexible giving options and can tailor a charitable program for you based on your philanthropic interests. We also have planned giving options that will enable you to give back to the community you love - forever.
Agency Fund - established by an agency in support of that agency, the endowment protects the prinicpal of the fund and disburses regular income to an organization while allowing the funds to be professionally managed.
Community Grants Fund - annual grant-making fund that responds to the needs of the community. Allows the donor to support a wide variety of worthy community projects.
Designated Fund - supports specific charities slected by the donor during their lifetime and beyond.
Donor Advised Fund - allows a donor (or designee) to serve as advisor to recommend grants from the fund. The donor becomes an active participant with identifying needs and grantmaking.
Field of Interest Fund - donors specify a field of interest such as arts, children's program, environmental education, etc. but leaves the selection of grant recipients to CFNCW. This fund provides recognition of the donor in their particular area of interest, but allows support for a variety of organizations in that field.
Fund for the Future - provides support for ongoing administrative needs of CFNCW, helping keep our fees low and providing maximum charitable benefit for our donors and the community.
Methow Valley Fund - established for the unique, specific needs of the Methow Valley.
Scholarship Fund - enables donors to provide scholarships for students seeking post-secondary education. A scholarship committee (that can involve the donor) selects recipients based upon criteria established by the donor.
