Community Foundation Bridges Funding for United Way Agencies

The Community Foundation of NCW has distributed $53,125 to bridge the gap in funding for several United Way partner agencies that were anticipating support in 2018 from the United Way of Chelan-Douglas Counties.

Thirteen nonprofit organizations were selected to receive funding based on being a United Way partner agency in 2017 that were likely to be funded in 2018. Each will receive the first-quarter amount they received in last year’s distribution from the United Way.

Not all agencies that have applied for 2018 funding from United Way may be included in this distribution, as the United Way has not finalized those selections.

NONPROFIT AGENCIES RECEIVING FUNDING

  • Camp Fire NCW
  • Chelan-Douglas CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates)
  • Chelan-Douglas Community Action Council
  • Children’s Home Society of Wenatchee
  • Lilac Services for the Blind
  • Mobile Meals of Wenatchee
  • Small Miracles
  • Together! For a Drug Free Youth
  • Upper Valley Connection
  • Wenatchee Dispute Resolution Center
  • Wenatchee Family Counseling
  • Wenatchee Valley YMCA
  • Women’s Resource Center

“When United Way announced they were moving their fiscal year and delaying partner funding distributions, we knew we needed to help” said Beth Stipe, the foundation’s executive director.

“These nonprofits serve some of our most vulnerable populations, and our Board of Trustees unanimously agreed to step up and use some of our reserves” added Ken Marson, the foundation’s board chair. “We are confident the United Way will successfully navigate this transition and emerge stronger than before, and hope this bridge funding allows the time they need while their partner agencies continue their work in our communities.”

As a leading philanthropic resource to our region, the Community Foundation of NCW is committed to working with the United Way and its partner agencies throughout this transition.

"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.
