Their generosity has benefitted so many causes locally and beyond; their impact has been immeasurable.

Cakes for College has raised $70,000 for scholarships this year from sales at the Apple Blossom Festival's Funnel Cake stand - the largest amount raised since they started in 2013. The proceeds provide $1,500 scholarships for local students attending Wenatchee Valley College, through the Cakes for College Scholarship here at the Foundation. For two weeks, 150 volunteers share their time to work the stand, cut strawberries, or donate in-kind services to make it all happen. Ben Paine, a Wenatchee native who spear-headed the venture, returns home each year to lead the charge with his parents, Bob and Nita. The CFNCW staff help with covering shifts and it's always a blast!! Thank you Paine family, volunteers, donors, customers, and everyone who helps to make this happen - many students are now closer to their education dreams because of you! ... See MoreSee Less

Our friends at the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo have established the Buffalo Together Community Response Fund to help with the impacts of the recent tragic shooting in their community. Community Foundations are trusted giving vehicles that work with local partner organizations to ensure the needs of the community are met. This is a great place to make a donation in any amount to bring help and hope to the Buffalo community.We have received an outpouring of support from near and far asking how to help our community move forward. In response, we have just announced two options you can provide financial support to: • Buffalo 5/14 Survivors Fund: For those looking to directly support the survivors, Tops, in partnership with the National Compassion Fund, has established the Buffalo 5/14 Survivors Fund to provide financial assistance to the survivors of the deceased and those directly affected by this tragedy. • Buffalo Together Community Response Fund: The Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, in partnership with United Way of Buffalo & Erie County and dozens of philanthropic partners, has initiated a coordinated philanthropic response to listen and respond to the broader community needs in the coming weeks and months. Visit www.buffalotogetherfund.org to learn how you can donate to either fund. Together, we must double down— all of us, from every corner of Buffalo and beyond— to end racism. This is the only way to create real change and emerge from the darkness of this heinous act. Buffalo is stronger together. ... See MoreSee Less

"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.”

Aero Methow Rescue Service

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.
