Studies show that most consumers believe it's important that a company or business supports charitable causes. And, employees who have access to an easy opportunity to donate to charity within their business tend to give more to charities in their local communities.

With Workplace Giving, we can help your employees give back to local charitable causes of their choice and enhance your company's philanthropic commitment to community.

How it works

Your employees will decide on an amount to deduct from their payroll each pay period. You may decide to match these donations to promote a culture of philanthropy at your organization.

Their deductions (and any matching you may do) are sent to CFNCW after each pay period. We set up a specific fund to deposit and track each employee’s donations. The total amount gets loaded onto a Giving Card that can be distributed electronically or physically to employees.

There are no fees associated with this program, so 100% of the employees deduction is used for charity.

What your employees can support

With the Giving Card, employees can support any number of charitable funds and giving campaigns managed by CFNCW, including:

  • Give NCW – supporting local nonprofits in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties
  • Give Methow – supporting Methow Valley nonprofits
  • Community Grants Program - our competitive grantmaking programs that provides vital financial support to local nonprofits
  • Partners In Giving – general support of the Foundation, filling gaps in grantmaking, boosting scholarship awards, and supporting nonprofit training and development programs
  • Any fund managed by the Foundation – including over 70 nonprofit funds, 130+ scholarships, or general support of the Foundation

The Giving Card is active for a calendar year, but if employees lose track of the card, we will contact them with a reminder. Unused balances will be directed to the Partners in Giving fund.

We are here to help connect your employees to charitable causes they care about and provide direct and personalized support to help guide them through the process and ensure that their giving experience is as meaningful as possible!



Xitlali Cruz


I am currently pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science at Stanford. Since the beginning of my freshman year I have been involved with clubs such as Stanford’s Space Initiative (SSI) and the Society of Latinx Engineers (SOLE). In SSI I built a rocket and launched it.


Aero Methow Rescue Service


Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated, we must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service. The grant allowed our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.


Chelan Douglas Volunteer Attorney Services


The grant provided funds to hire a Housing Justice and Outreach Coordinator to visit rural and underserved areas. Rosie’s bilingual and bicultural skills and experience have increased equity of service. Rosie is building partnerships with local organizations through events such as the Columbia Valley Community Health’s Back to School Drive, as well as posting yard signs.

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.
