Pateros-Brewster Community Resource Center awarded CFNCW funds

PATEROS – The Pateros-Brewster Community Resource Center (PBCRC) has been awarded $5,892 by the Community Foundation of North Central Washington (CFNCW) through its Give NCW campaign.
PBCRC is one of 62 nonprofit organizations across the region that received a portion of the $666,869 awarded.
 Give NCW is an annual online fundraising campaign hosted by the Community Foundation from Thanksgiving Day through December 31. This year, Give NCW was open to any 501c3 charitable organization that was in good standing, located in Chelan, Douglas, or Okanogan counties, and has received a competitive grant from the Foundation.
“This is our second year opening up Give NCW to any eligible nonprofit” said Beth Stipe, the Foundation’s Executive Director. “We’ve had great feedback from the community on how easy it is to donate through Give NCW and more importantly, how they learn about new organizations to support.”
Minimum donation to Give NCW is just $10, and the Foundation covers the credit card fees. The Foundation also provided $90,000 in giving incentives to encourage community support, including a $50,000 match to “Give to All” donations that were spread equally among all participants, resulting in an added $1,792 per organization. Each “Funday Monday” of the campaign selected three names from donations on Mondays to win $1,000 to use on Give NCW, and “Match Wednesdays” matched gifts up to $100 each week for the first $5,000 in donations – with the final week matching up to the first $15,000 thanks to the Partner in Giving fund.
Since 2015, Give NCW has raised over $2.3 million for nonprofits across North Central Washington. “Give NCW has always been about giving everyone an easy way to support local causes that make NCW an awesome place to live,” said Stipe. “Our friends and neighbors continue to show how generous and giving they are every year. When we all give what we can, we can do great things in our communities!”
