Fire Relief Funds
Supporting our NCW Families and Friends in Need
We live in North Central Washington because of its amazing beauty, access to recreation, connection to wilderness, and incredible sense of community.
Each year, our beautiful dry lands are vulnerable to wildfires and unfortunately we too often come face to face with them.
The Community Foundation of NCW cares about its citizens across the region and works with local agencies to ensure those who are affected by wildfires receive the help and support they need.
Many areas have been affected by wildfire, so we’ve set up specific funds to ensure your gift helps supports the places you care about. We collaborate with the social service agencies that are directly helping people in need who hear their story, determine their needs, and provide available resources. When there are needs beyond what they can offer, the service agencies come to us with requests to meet those needs, and we use your gifts through the fire relief fund to fulfill them.
Recovery and rebuilding can take a long time. The Community Foundation’s fire relief funds will continue to support fire victims’ long term recovery needs as long as it takes.
100% of your donation goes directly to aid fire victims, we do not charge any administration fee. A detailed tax exempt will be sent to you shortly after your gift.
Okanogan County Long Term Recovery Group Fund
The Okanogan County Long Term Recovery Group (OCLTRG) was formed to assist homeowners affected by wildfires in rebuilding and recovery. The OCLTRG connects fire survivors with Disaster Case Management personnel to find the resources needed to rebuild, including materials and volunteer coordination. Donations to this fund will support rebuilding homes for survivors.
