Grantmaking is a primary way the Community Foundation of NCW makes a difference in your community. CFNCW provides several funding opportunities that support nonprofit charitable organizations and public institutions that work to enhance the quality of life in Chelan, Douglas and Okanogan counties. Grants are made available through established unrestricted funds and gifts from donors.
The competitive grant review process seeks to identify projects and programs with the greatest potential to further benefit the region through areas such as arts and culture, education, environment and animal protection, health and human services, and public/social benefit.
We encourage all eligible nonprofit organizations to review all grant offerings listed to the left to determine the best fit for your organization. We also recommend you review the Grant Guidelines and Policies and Grants FAQ before you start your application process.
For questions or more information on our grant programs, contact our Director of Community Grants, Claire Oatey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
