Now Accepting Applications for Helping Hands and Regional Impact Grants

The Community Foundation’s new Helping Hands Grant program provides up to $2,500 to support unexpected needs or special funding opportunities where a small investment could make a big difference. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis; grants are awarded every other month.

The Regional Impact Grant (RIG) program is the foundation’s largest funding opportunity for nonprofits in the NCW region, supporting general operating needs and/or specific projects through a competitive grant process.
In effort to make a greater impact, there is no longer a funding cap to grant requests. In addition, the RIG will now include a crowdfunding component called Give NCW that will allow the general public to learn about local nonprofit programs and help support them.

Helping Hands and Regional Impact Grants are open to 501c3 nonprofit organizations and public agencies (except for public schools) in Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties.

Application deadline is for Regional Impact Grant is September 1st.

"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.

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.
