Thanks to your generous support, Give Methow raised $220,533 for 32 nonprofits that are working to meet critical needs of the valley, protect its beautiful environment, take care of its residents, and continue to make it a vibrant community.
In addition to direct gifts, each organization received a portion of a $32,000 stretch pool that was seeded by an anonymous donor and added to by donors who chose to support all organizations in one gift, and with additional funds from our Funday Monday contests put a few of our participants over their goals.

You can donate to one or several nonprofits in one, easy transaction and 100% of your donation goes to the nonprofits you support – we take care of the credit card fees.
GIVE METHOW REQUESTS
Each organization has requested your donations for a special project or general operating support. Once they meet their goal, their request will show “Fully Funded”! However, they would still love your continued support via their website provided in their entry.
GROW THE STRETCH POOL
An anonymous donor who loves the Methow Valley has seeded a “stretch pool” with $30,000. Each Give Methow participant will receive a percentage of the stretch pool based on the total amount they raise. There is a donation option to support ALL Give Methow participants in one gift by adding to the stretch pool!
Each Monday of the campaign, we will draw a name from all donations on that day and the winner will receive $500 to spend on Give Methow any way they choose! Applies only to online gifts.
YOUR TAX DEDUCTION
You will receive an email confirmation of your gift immediately after your donation, and a second detailed tax receipt will follow. We will share your contact information to the organizations you support so they can send you special recognition and thanks. If you do not wish your information to be shared, you can choose to be anonymous and we’ll keep your donation private.
