Methow Valley Fund Awards $63,050 to Local Nonprofits

The Community Foundation of NCW has awarded $63,050 to Methow Valley nonprofits through the Methow Valley Fund (MVF).

Established in 2006, the MVF is funded by an anonymous donor and donations from the public to support programs that address community needs and enhancements for the Methow Valley.

“The Methow Valley is such a great example of a community taking care of each other” said Denise Sorom, the foundation’s director of community philanthropy. “The bounty of nonprofit work in the valley tremendously improves the quality of life, which makes it such a special place to live and visit.”

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.

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.
