Give NCW Raises Record-Breaking Amount for NCW Nonprofits

The Community Foundation of NCW has awarded $686,899 a to 80 nonprofits through Give NCW, an online fundraising campaign from Thanksgiving to December 31st – a record breaking amount for the campaign which also hosted the most participants since its inception in 2015.

Give NCW 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 inspire and encourage the residents of our region to be part of a culture of philanthropy” said Beth Stipe, the foundation’s executive director. “When everyone gives a little, it can make a big impact and Give NCW provides an easy way to give locally and learn about the nonprofits making a difference 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 $1,500 in extra donations. We’re so grateful to be able to have inspired and motivated giving with this match.”

Many local businesses supported Give NCW this year, including Plaza Super Jet, a neighborhood grocery store in Wenatchee who provided an opportunity for customers to round up their purchases which resulted in a $10,000 donation for “Give to All”, which was doubled for a total of $20,000 to benefit all 80 nonprofits. “We’re so grateful to Plaza Super Jet for providing this opportunity for people to give easily in any amount.”

In addition, the Foundation organized a Turkey Trot fun run in Wenatchee on Thanksgiving morning that raised over $17,000 for the campaign. “We are so grateful and humbled by the 1300+ runners that came out for this huge community event and the Wenatchee Valley Medical Group for sponsoring it which enabled us to raise a significant amount for Give to All” said Stipe.

Give NCW is open to any 501c3 nonprofit organization located in Chelan, Douglas, or Okanogan counties that has received at least one of the foundation’s competitive grants. They were able to raise funds for specific projects or support their core operations.

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.
