Woods Family Music and Arts Grant Awards $61,433 to Schools and Nonprofits

WoodsFamilyTaglineThe Woods Family Music and Arts Grant, managed by the Community Foundation of NCW, has awarded $61,433 in grants to schools and nonprofits across North Central Washington.

Established in 2011, the Woods Grant provides up to $5,000 to support programs that foster and improve arts and music awareness, education, performance, events, and professional development.

The annual grant is open to 501c3 nonprofit organizations and public agencies in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties.

“The Woods family members have been incredible advocates for music and arts culture in our region” said Denise Sorom, director of community philanthropy at the foundation. “Their grants have helped to make music and art accessible in schools that lack state funding support and supported programs reach audiences who may otherwise never be able to see or participate in art. They have and continue to shape arts and culture in our region in a significant way.”

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.”

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.
