WENATCHEE VALLEY FUND
The Wenatchee Valley encompasses communities along the Wenatchee and Columbia Rivers, including Monitor, Wenatchee, Orondo, East Wenatchee, and Malaga. The area is growing as new residents come to enjoy its recreation, agriculture, and increasing food, wine, and restaurant scene. Alongside these benefits are many charitable organizations that are working to preserve, protect, and enhance the quality of life for all Wenatchee Valley residents.
The Wenatchee 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 Wenatchee Valley communities can donate to the fund - during or after their lifetime - to increase the annual grant award allotment.
Give to the Wenatchee Valley Fund
A gift to the Wenatchee Valley Fund - during or after your lifetime - provides long term sustainability for Wenatchee 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.

Local Advisory Boards (LAB) provide leadership and input, recommend annual grants, and help grow Wenatchee Valley Fund by inspiring potential donors to leave a legacy in their local community. The Wenatchee Valley LAB 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.
