Give NCW Raises over $611,000 for Local Nonprofits

The Community Foundation of NCW has awarded $611,568 to 73 local nonprofits through Give NCW, an online fundraising campaign from Thanksgiving to December 31st.

This is the 8th year of Give NCW which was created to build awareness of nonprofit organizations that are serving the region and to provide an easy way for anyone to give with a minimum donation of just $10.

“Our goal with Give NCW is to help build a culture of philanthropy in North Central Washington, where everyone feels they can give back to the community they love” said Beth Stipe, the foundation’s executive director. “Give NCW is an easy way to give locally and learn about new nonprofits doing work that is improving the quality of life across the region.”

The foundation provided added incentives to encourage and motivate giving, such as Funday Monday in which donors won $1,000 to use on Give NCW any way they chose. There was also an option to “Give to All” to support all participating organizations and have your donation matched, thanks to our Partners in Giving. “Our Partners provide unrestricted gifts that are invaluable to our organization,” said Stipe. “We’ve been able to award additional grants, increase scholarship awards, and provide additional opportunities for nonprofits. This year the $50,000 match to Give to All was met and provided each nonprofit with over $1,400 in extra donations. We’re so grateful to be able to have inspired and motivated giving with this match.”

This year, Give NCW was open to any 501c3 nonprofit organization located in Chelan, Douglas, or Okanogan counties and had received at least one of the foundation’s competitive grants in the past. They were able to raise funds for specific projects or their core operations. Twenty-one nonprofits raised over $10,000.

Xitlali Cruz


I am currently pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science at Stanford. Since the beginning of my freshman year I have been involved with clubs such as Stanford’s Space Initiative (SSI) and the Society of Latinx Engineers (SOLE). In SSI I built a rocket and launched it.


Aero Methow Rescue Service


Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated, we must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service. The grant allowed our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.


Chelan Douglas Volunteer Attorney Services


The 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.

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.
