Altrusa Club of Wenatchee SCHOLARSHIP

The Altrusa Club of Wenatchee was part of an international service club providing scholarships out of the proceeds from dues and fundraising projects.  When declining membership could no longer support charter status, the local chapter was allowed to maintain alumni status and created a scholarship fund at the Community Foundation of NCW with the remaining funds. The Altrusa Alumni believe in the education of women and want to help women graduates of Wenatchee Valley College who are committed to continuing education in their chosen field.

Scholarship Recipient

"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.
