Posted in Business & EconomyTagged , , , ,


On Veterans Day the Community Foundation of NCW announced its Give Methow campaign raised over $276,000 for distribution to 33 Methow Valley nonprofits including $570 to the Methow Valley American Legion Post 0143 – Honoring their Service to Veterans and the Methow Valley Community

Give Methow is a crowdfunding campaign hosted by the Community Foundation during the month of October to build awareness about nonprofits serving the Methow Valley and provide a way for people to easily support their work.

Any 501c3 public charity in the Methow Valley was eligible to participate to raise funds for up to $10,000 to support a specific program or general operations. The organizations who participated are all fostering quality of life for the Methow Valley – from the arts to environment, health and housing, to education, recreation, and community services.

An anonymous donor who loves the Methow Valley continues to seed a $30,000 pool each year that is disbursed among the nonprofits based on how much they raised. Additional gifts to the pool provided an additional $32,000 that gave some nonprofits an extra $1,300 if they reached their goal.
