Give Methow campaign raises $276,535 for Methow Valley nonprofits
The Community Foundation of NCW is pleased to announce the 4th annual Give Methow campaign has raised $276,535 for 33 Methow Valley nonprofits.
Give Methow is a crowdfunding campaign hosted by the Community Foundation during the month of October to build awareness about nonprofits serving the Methow Valley and provide a way for people to easily support their work.
“We believe anyone can be a philanthropist” said Beth Stipe, the foundation’s executive director. “Give Methow makes is easy for anyone to give, and with a $10 minimum, it’s accessible to anyone who wants to support the good work happening right here in their own community.”
Any 501c3 public charity in the Methow Valley was eligible to participate to raise funds for up to $10,000 to support a specific program or general operations. The organizations who participated are all fostering quality of life for the Methow Valley – from the arts to environment, health and housing, to education, recreation, and community services.
An anonymous donor who loves the Methow Valley continues to seed a $30,000 stretch pool each year that is disbursed among the nonprofits based on how much they raised. Additional gifts to the stretch pool provided $32,325 that gave some nonprofits an extra $1,300 if they reached their goal.
The foundation added some fun to fundraising with the Funday Monday incentive. Each time someone gave on a Monday, their name was entered to win up to $1,000 to donate back to one or more Give Methow nonprofits. The final Funday Monday brought in over $32,000 from 387 donations.
