LOCAL ADVISORY BOARDS
Engaging NCW Residents in Local Philanthropy
Do you love your community and believe in the important role that nonprofits contribute to making it a better place to live, work, and play? Are you eager to learn more about the challenges and opportunities facing local communities? Do you have a passion for supporting and being a champion of groups working to move the needle on community issues?
The Community Foundation of NCW has established locally based Legacy Funds to support nonprofits and community organizations with programs that address community needs throughout North Central Washington.
We are seeking new volunteers to serve as Local Advisory Board members in the Okanogan Valley, Methow Valley, Chelan Valley, Wenatchee Valley, Cashmere, and Upper Valley communities!
The Local Advisory Boards will represent a broad and diverse cross section of each community, including a mix of long-time and newer residents, working and retired individuals, donors, volunteers, nonprofit representatives, and community members.
Advisors provide leadership and input, recommend grants from the Legacy Funds established to benefit each community, help grow the funds, and inspire potential donors to leave a legacy in their local community.
Local Advisory Board Members agree to participate for a three year term (renewable once), actively engage in Advisory Board meetings (3 - 4 per year), including a mandatory regional training on Saturday, April 13th from 10am - 3pm in Chelan. Local Advisory Board members will evaluate grant applications, attend site visits, and be an ambassador with donors, nonprofit partners, and the community.
Applications are due on March 1, 2024 by 10 PM. New Advisory terms begin on April 1, 2024.
