Nonprofit Reemergence Grant

Awarded Quarterly

Funding Reemergence Efforts for Nonprofits Impacted by Covid

The Nonprofit Reemergence Grant is a temporary grant program to support 501(c)3 charitable organizations located in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties as they recover from the current public health crisis and adapt their operations for future viability. Organizations are also encouraged to attend the Nonprofit Remergence Learning Series to strengthen nonprofit resilience and support them through this application process.

Reemergence Grants are intended for:

  • General Operating Support
  • Support for Mergers

Organizations may request funding for up to 10% of their current organizational budget with a maximum grant request of $20,000.

Since the timeline for organizational recovery will look different for each nonprofit, grants awards will be made on a quarterly basis with $100,000 of total funding available per grant deadline. Follow-up Zoom meetings will be scheduled on an as-needed basis.
