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.
