Nestled in the Cascade Foothills, the city of Cashmere is a small, rural town that spans a few miles along the Wenatchee River. With a population of just over 3,000, it's a place where neighbors know and care for each other.
The Cashmere Fund will provide funding for charitable causes that aim to preserve, protect, and enhance the quality of life for Cashmere residents.
Qualified nonprofits can apply for grant funding each fall and people who love and care for Cashmere can donate to the fund - during or after their lifetime - to increase the annual grant award allotment.
Give to the Cashmere Fund
A gift to the Cashmere Fund - during or after your lifetime - provides long term sustainability for Cashmere Fund Grant. A percentage of this endowed fund is used each year for the grants. As the endowment grows, the grant award distribution continues to provide greater funding for charitable causes in perpetuity.

Local Advisory Boards (LAB) provide leadership and input, recommend annual grants, and help grow Cashmere Fund by inspiring potential donors to leave a legacy in their local community. The Cashmere LAB 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.
