Waterville Fund Grants $7,034 to Community Projects

The Waterville Community Fund, managed by the Community Foundation of NCW, has awarded $7,034 in grants to support local projects.

The WCF was established in 1988 by five local residents who each gave $5,000 to build an endowment for the community they cherished. With an endowment, the principal of the fund is invested for growth while a small percentage is available each year for grant disbursement.

The WCF grant is an annual program that provides funding to nonprofit organization serving local needs in areas such as arts and culture, civic engagement, conservation, education, human services, and more.

The application opens each year on October 1st and is due November 30th.

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.
