Woods Family Music and Arts Fund Awards $59,400 in Grants

The Woods Family Music and Arts Fund has awarded $59,400 in grants supporting schools and nonprofits across the region.

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

“We are so grateful for the generosity the Woods have provided to our music and arts community for the last decade” said Jennifer Dolge, director of donor services and communications. “They are committed to ensuring music and arts is accessible to all – from professional development for musicians to bringing experiences to under-served communities. They’ve recently extended their grant opportunities to Okanogan County, furthering their passion for sharing their love of music.”

The Woods Grant opens August 1, 2019.

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.
