Apple Pie Jamboree, Pateros Brewster Resource receive grants

Community Foundation of NCW gives
“Each applicant is visited by a team of Community Foundation staff and Trustees to learn more about their organization and grant request to determine award recipients,” the release said.

PATEROS – The Apple Pie Jamboree and the Pateros Brewster Community Resource Group are two among 28 non-profit groups in the Chelan-Douglas-Okanogan tri-county to receive Regional Impact Grants (RIG) from the Community Foundation of North Central Washington (CFNCW).
Apple Pie Jamboree received $6,000 for event improvements, and the Pateros Brewster Community Resource Group was awarded $9,000 to help with general operating support. The grants were part of a total of $216,950 distributed by CFNCW’s Crowdfunding Campaign.
The RIG is an annual grant open to any 501c3 charitable nonprofit or public agency in Chelan, Douglas, or Okanogan counties to support specific projects or general operations for programs that make a positive impact in their communities, a CFNCW media release said.
“Each applicant is visited by a team of Community Foundation staff and Trustees to learn more about their organization and grant request to determine award recipients,” the release said. “Over 60 applications were submitted, making this year’s grant very competitive.
“We are really excited about the list of recipients this year,” said Claire Oatey, director of community grants. “They are so diverse – from arts to environment, health services to youth programs – all reaching different areas of our region to improve quality of life.”
Since the dollar amount of requests received far exceeded the amount the foundation was able to award, each of the grant recipients received a portion of their grant request.
That’s where Give NCW comes in. Give NCW is an online crowdfunding campaign that showcases each nonprofit project and requests donations from the community.
“We started Give NCW to build awareness of the great nonprofit work happening in our communities across the region,” said Jennifer Dolge, director of donor service and communications. “Last year, the public gave more to organizations on Give NCW than the foundation awarded in Regional Impact Grants.
To view the list of participants and donate to their projects, visit www.givencw.org from Thanksgiving Day to Dec. 31. Minimum donation is $10, and CFNCW is absorbing all credit cards fees so 100 percent of the donation supports the nonprofit.
Donations can support multiple projects in one transaction, or the Give to All option allows a gift to be divided among each organization.
The next Regional Impact Grant will open in July 2018. All awarded recipients must wait one year before re-applying.
