Community Foundation of NCW Establishes Fire Relief Fund

The Community Foundation of NCW has established a Fire Relief Fund to assist those who have been affected by the devastating fires raging throughout North Central Washington, according to an announcement made today by Beth Stipe, Executive Director of the Foundation.

“We are working with our nonprofit partners throughout the region to ensure that there are adequate resources to assist both the short and long term recovery needs of those in our region who have been affected by the fires. In times like these, the people of North Central Washington – a resilient group of folks – are there to help their neighbors. This fund will be used to help both short term immediate needs of fire victims, but also to help long term needs of recovery” said Stipe.

In situations like the Charlton Complex Fire, the most effective method of assisting those impacted by the fire is through monetary donations to organizations that specialize in supporting local disasters. CFNCW encourages donors to support the local chapter of the American Red Cross who is working on immediate needs.

“We remain concerned about our neighbors and friends who have suffered losses related to the fires that continue to burn throughout North Central Washington. Our network of nonprofit relationships will ensure that any contributions we receive for the NCW FIRE RELIEF FUND are effectively distributed to those nonprofits and groups that can serve the greatest needs of the fire victims in our communities. While we don’t want to detract from the immediate local efforts, we believe we should simultaneously plan and prepare for the long term implications and needs this fire will produce for our region.”

To support the NCW FIRE RELIEF FUND, donations can be made directly online at:

    We have a lot of baby items that we would like to donate to the victims of the Carlton/Pateros Fire. Clothes, strollers, cribs, etc. How do we go about donating these items? We live in Everett but have a lot of family and friends that lost their homes in Pateros.

"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.”

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.

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.
