Spirit of giving alive and well in Methow Valley


TWISP – The spirit of giving is alive and very healthy in the Methow Valley according to the latest figures released by the Community Foundation of North Central Washington (CFNCW).

CFNCW announced that its Give Methow campaign has generated more than $275,000 that was distributed to 33 501(c)3 nonprofit groups in the Methow Valley.

 “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,” a CFNCW media release said.

The release noted that an anonymous donor continues to seed a $30,000 stretch pool each year that is disbursed among the nonprofits based on how much they raised.

 “Additional gifts to the stretch pool provided $32,325 that gave some nonprofits an extra $1,300 if they reached their goal,” the CFNCW release said.

“At the Community Foundation, we believe anyone can be a philanthropist” said Beth Stipe, the foundation’s executive director. “Give Methow makes is easy for anyone to give, and with a $10 minimum donation.”

 The Give Methow campaign will run again in October 2019. For more information, visit
