WATERVILLE COMMUNITY FUND GRANT

Application Opens: October 1
Application Deadline: December 1

The Waterville Community Fund provides grant funding for innovative programs that help to meet the needs of the Waterville community and its citizens. The fund supports a variety of organizations and activities, such as:

  • Arts and Culture
  • Civic Projects
  • Conservation and Environment
  • Education
  • Health and Human Services

Priority is given to projects that provide enhancements to existing programs (rather than core operating needs,) have limited access to other funding sources, and that support the work of dedicated community volunteers.

Grant Guidelines

  • Applicants must be a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization or governmental agency whose program serves the Waterville community.
  • Grant funds must be expended within one year of award date.
  • Grant funds must not be used to reimburse previously incurred expenses.

Evaluation

Each application is reviewed by the Waterville Community Fund Advisory Committee with grant recommendations made to the Community Foundation’s Board of Trustees. Applicants will be notified of award status in December.

Scholarship Recipient

"My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. [He] told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.”

Aero Methow Rescue Service

STRATEGIC CONSULTING GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated Aero Methow Rescue Service must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service.  This program allows our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.
