UPPER VALLEY FUND
Just east of the majestic Tumwater Canyon, the Upper Valley of Leavenworth, Plain, Peshastin, and Dryden boast communities of recreation and agriculture. While tourists come and go, their primary residents care for and protect the qualities that make this area a beautiful and adventurous place to live, work, and play.
The Upper Valley Fund will provide funding for charitable causes that aim to preserve, protect, and enhance the quality of life for its residents.
Qualified nonprofits can apply for grant funding each fall and people who love and care for the Upper Valley can donate to the fund - during or after their lifetime - to increase the annual grant award allotment.
Give to the Upper Valley Fund
A gift to the Upper Valley Fund - during or after your lifetime - provides long term sustainability for Upper Valley Fund Grant. A percentage of this endowed fund is used each year for the grants. As the endowment grows, the grant award distribution continues to provide greater funding for charitable causes in perpetuity.
Apply for an Upper Valley Fund Grant
