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.

For questions or more information, contact Claire Oatey, director of community grants, at (509) 663-7716 or claire@cfncw.org.

"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.”

REGIONAL IMPACT GRANT RECIPIENT

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.
