Confluence Health and Wenatchee Valley Medical Group Announce Grant Program
Confluence Health and the Wenatchee Valley Medical Group (WVMG) have teamed up to launch the Community Partnership Fund, a program focused on advancing local initiatives that contribute to the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve. The Community Partnership Fund will be managed by the Community Foundation of NCW and plans to award $500,000 each year.
This grant is open to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations (or fiscally sponsored), public schools, and public agencies in Chelan, Douglas, Okanogan, and Grant counties. Grants will be made to support programs that promote health and wellness, education, and arts and culture.
The grant application opens June 1, 2021 with a deadline of June 30, 2021. Grant awards may range between $2,500 and $15,000 and will be announced in early August.
“While organizations were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, our nonprofit community stepped up to continue serving the residents of North Central Washington” said Dr. Peter Rutherford, CEO for Confluence Health.
Wenatchee Valley Medical Group President, Dr. Mitch Garrison added, “We know how important the services provided by nonprofits are to the health, safety, and well-being of the region. We hope the Community Partnership Fund can help further support our nonprofits as we depend on them more than ever before.”
“Confluence and WVMG have been supporting community initiatives and making an impact across the region for years” said Beth Stipe, the Community Foundation’s executive director. “We’re excited to be their charitable partner and help them continue and grow this effort that provides a huge benefit to the citizens of our region.”
