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.”

"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.”

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.
