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.
