Overview:

The Methow Valley Fund exists to support the work of the charitable organizations of the Methow Valley. Created in 2006, it is one of the philanthropic funds managed by CFNCW. The Methow Valley Fund was established in order to:

  • Contribute to a vibrant community through awards of grant funding in support of health and human services, education, arts and culture, the environment, social and public benefit projects.
  • Assist non-profit and public organization in their development of strong, sustainable programs.
  • Create a permanent endowment ensuring availability of local resources to fund projects serving local needs and opportunities long into the future.
  • The Methow Valley Fund is advised by a diverse group of local volunteers. They live and work in the Valley and are passionate about the work being done by charitable organizations in our community. The advisors have first-hand knowledge of local needs and opportunities and of the successful impacts made by the organizations we fund.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
