METHOW VALLEY FUND ADVISORY BOARD
Sustainable funding for a healthy, vibrant Methow Valley
Do you love the Methow Valley community and believe in the important role that nonprofits play in making it a better place to live, work and play? Are you eager to learn more about the challenges and opportunities facing local organizations? Do you have a passion for supporting and being a champion for groups working to move the needle on community issues?
The Methow Valley Fund (MVF), held at the Community Foundation of NCW, supports nonprofits and community agencies with programs that address community needs in the Methow Valley. The Methow Valley Fund Advisory Board aims to represent a broad and diverse cross section of the 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 restricted funds established to benefit the Methow Valley community, and help grow endowment funds at the Foundation by inspiring potential donors to leave a legacy in their local community.
MVF Advisors agree to participate for a three year term (renewable once), actively engage in Advisory Board meetings (4 - 6 per year), join and be involved in a minimum of one committee, evaluate grant applications and attend site visits, and be an ambassador with donors, nonprofit partners, and the community.
The next opportunity to join the MVF Advisory board will be in 2023. To receive updates, join our mailing list and be sure to select "Methow Valley".
