Give Methow Raises Over $650,000 for Local Nonprofits

Give Methow has raised $654,375 for 38 Methow Valley nonprofits – a record-breaking amount for the annual campaign hosted by the Community Foundation of North Central Washington.

Give Methow is an online fundraising campaign to support Methow Valley nonprofits throughout the month of October. Any 501c3 nonprofit or fiscally sponsored organization located within the Methow Valley in good standing is eligible to participate.

Minimum donation is $10 and the Community Foundation covers all the credit card fees, so 100% of the donations went directly to the nonprofits. This year, over $67,000 was donated to the “Give to All” option which is spread equally among all participants. An anonymous donor matched $30,000 and the Community Foundation allotted $10,000 to this pool.

“We started Give Methow in 2015 to build awareness of the nonprofit programs in the Methow Valley and provide a way for people to give in any size” said Beth Stipe, executive director. “Since then, over $1.7M has been disbursed to charitable causes in the Methow Valley, thanks to the extraordinary generosity of those who care so deeply about the Methow.”

Perhaps one of the most significant and fun aspects of the campaign is Funday Monday – each time a donation is made on a Monday, the donor’s name is entered to win $500 to use on Give Methow any way they choose. On the last Funday Monday, 848 donations were made totaling nearly $104,000 in one day. “It’s my favorite part of Give Methow” said Jennifer Dolge, who manages the campaign. “Each winner I talk to is so excited to give, and they always mention how much they love the campaign and their local nonprofits. It’s fun to be the messenger!”

"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.”

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.
