Community Foundation Week Celebrates Local Giving

South CF WeekEach year, over 750 Community Foundations Celebrate Community Foundation Week November 12 – 18. Officially proclaimed by President George H.W. Bush in 1989, the Community Foundation of NCW wants to take the opportunity to thank and recognize our generous donors and partners.

Last year YOUR community foundation received $3.7 million in gifts and awarded $2.8 million to programs that protect our environment, embrace our cultures, preserve our history, and shape our future.

For all of this: WE THANK YOU.

We hope you take a moment today or sometime this week to embrace your inner philanthropist and consider supporting your favorite local cause. Whether it’s time or money, we all have something to give.

On Thursday, November 14th, you can support your community foundation – just by having dinner! Join us at SOUTH at Pybus from 5:00pm – 9:00pm and 20% of all food sales will benefit the foundation. Those funds will go right back into supporting communities across NCW. We hope to see you there!

Scholarship Recipient

"My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. [He] told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.”

REGIONAL IMPACT GRANT RECIPIENT

The Regional Impact Grant provided funds to hire a Housing Justice and Outreach Coordinator to visit rural and underserved areas. Rosie’s bilingual and bicultural skills and experience have increased equity of service. Rosie is building partnerships with local organizations through events such as the Columbia Valley Community Health’s Back to School Drive, as well as posting yard signs.

Aero Methow Rescue Service

STRATEGIC CONSULTING GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated Aero Methow Rescue Service must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service.  This program allows our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.
