Imagine what we can do, together.
…every child in our community has a safe place to call home, every animal is rescued and loved, every family has enough food to eat, every person has a warm bed to sleep in, every senior has a comfortable place to age, and every student has a chance to go to college.
If we all Give 10, we don’t have to imagine.
Community Philanthropy means we all chip in together. It means every one of us gives something – no matter how big or small – back to the community that gives us so much.
We believe in the generosity of our region because we’ve seen it first-hand.
What we give today is significant. Last year the foundation was able to award about $4 Million to charitable causes that are impacting our community – and that is no small number.
A recent study done by the Community Foundation of NCW showed that over next 10 years, if every person in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties left 10% of their will or estate – no matter how small or large – to the Community Foundation, we would have an additional $18 million per year to support nonprofit work in our region.
What does this mean for my community?
It means we provide four times the grant funding we give to public schools, libraries, museums, parks, law enforcement, health services, and other not-for-profit agencies in our region.
It means we have a very realistic opportunity to create the community we imagine.
It means that everyone has to participate.
You don’t have to be a millionaire to give 10% back to your community – everyone’s contribution will make our community rich in its ability to preserve, protect, and enhance the place that we all love.
How do I Give 10?
It’s easy. Call your attorney today and tell them you want to Give 10 and include a charitable bequest in your will or estate plans.
If you haven’t done your will yet or don’t have an attorney, we have a list of Professional Advisors from across the region that can help.
Since 1986, the Community Foundation has managed charitable funds for individuals, families, and organizations that care about supporting their community. Many of these funds are endowed and will allow the foundation to continue supporting the nonprofit work that makes North Central Washington the best place to live.
Whether you give today, or leave something after you’re gone, anyone can give back with the Community Foundation.
You don’t have to imagine a better community. Together, we can create one.
