    The Community Foundation of NCW is pleased to announce its Give NCW campaign has raised $203,254 for 25 nonprofits in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties.
     
    Give NCW is a crowdfunding campaign starting Thanksgiving Day through December 31st that invites the public to support 25 nonprofits across North Central Washington. The selected organizations received a Regional Impact Grant from the foundation, but only for a portion of their request. Give NCW provided an opportunity for organizations to raise additional funds to reach their full request goal and build awareness about their program or project. Seven organizations were “Fully Funded” and met their full fundraising goals.
     
    “We launched Give NCW five years ago as a way for people to learn about charitable programs that are impacting their community directly” said Beth Stipe, executive director. “It’s an easy way for people to give locally, in any amount, and be part of philanthropy in our region.”
     
    There was an additional $3,000 awarded to nonprofits through Funday Monday – each time someone gave on a Monday, their name was entered to win up to $1,000 to use on Give NCW any way they chose. Several nonprofits benefitted from the extra funds and it provided incentive for people to give. Two Wenatchee businesses, Mela Coffee Roasting and Fireshouse Pet Shop, also provided gift cards as incentive for people to donate.
     
    “Giving should be a fun and rewarding experience.” said Stipe, “Each year we try to come up with new ways to engage people to give. Our goal is not just raising the dollars, but inspiring everyone to be a philanthropist – at any level.”
    The total amount dispersed to the 25 nonprofits between Give NCW and the Regional Impact Grant is over $417,000. The next Regional Impact Grant application opens June 1, 2019.
