Methow Valley Fund Seeks New Advisory Board Members
The Community Foundation of NCW is currently seeking new members to serve on the Methow Valley Fund Advisory Board.
The Methow Valley Fund (MVF) supports nonprofit and community agencies with programs that address community needs in the Methow Valley. The MVF Advisory Board aims to represent a broad and diverse cross section of the community, including a mix of long-time and newer residents, working and retired individuals, donors, volunteers, nonprofit representatives, and community members.
Advisors provide leadership and input, recommend grants from restricted funds established to benefit the Methow Valley community, and help grow endowment funds at the Foundation by inspiring potential donors to leave a legacy in their local community.
MVF Advisors agree to participate for a three-year term (renewable once), actively engage in Advisory Board meetings, join and be involved in a minimum of one committee, evaluate grant applications and attend site visits, and be an ambassador with donors, nonprofit partners, and the community.
“Recent legacy gifts left to the Methow Valley Fund have substantially increased the amount of grant funding available to local nonprofits who are making a difference across the Methow Valley” said Beth Stipe, CFNCW executive director. “We’re excited to grow the advisory board and engage more community members in overseeing the grantmaking and being ambassadors for not only the great work of the nonprofit community but inspiring others to leave meaningful gifts that will continue to benefit the Methow Valley for generations to come.”
Applications are due on May 31, 2022 at 10 PM. New Advisory terms begin on July 1, 2022.
