The Community Foundation of North Central Washington said Friday (Aug. 28) that is launching a new fundraising campaign, Give Methow, on Sept. 1 and continuing through Sept. 30, that will showcase 22 nonprofits in the Methow Valley and provide an opportunity to support their work.
Information about the campaign can be found at www.givemethow.org.
“The Methow Valley has again experienced loss and hardship due to the wildfires, but they are a resilient community,” said Beth Stipe, the foundation’s executive director. “Give Methow will help to support the nonprofit agencies that serve the valley’s greatest needs, protect its resources, and enhance the quality of life. Now more than ever, they need this support.”
Through Give Methow, anyone can donate in any amount to support these agencies. Starting Sept. 1, the campaign’s website will list the nonprofit participants along with a photo and a description of their project or program.
Thanks to a gift from the St. Paul Foundation/Wicklow Fund, Give Methow will be providing $30,000 in bonus incentives and a match pool to inspire giving and boost the amount of gifts to the participants.
Give Methow will match a portion of every gift through the match pool. Depending on the final amount in the pool at the end of the campaign, each nonprofit will receive a percentage of the pool based on the total sum of donations they have received through Give Methow.
Bonus incentives might provide an extra $500 to the nonprofit that earns the most donations on a selected day.
Give Methow is an online giving campaign; however, donations of cash or check can also be mailed to the Community Foundation at 9 S. Wenatchee Ave., Wenatchee WA 98801. Gifts of stock can be accepted by contacting the Community Foundation office at (509) 663-7716.
