Grants to North Central Washington nonprofits, government agencies, and faith-based organizations for a broad range of activities to enhance the quality of life and meet community needs. Projects must benefit residents of Douglas, Chelan, and Okanogan Counties, excluding the Methow Valley. Funding is intended to support specific projects or general operations.
Receiving a Regional Impact Grant means you also participate in the Give NCW crowdfunding campaign. The RIG is an opportunity to seek funding directly from the foundation to support a nonprofit project or general operations, while the Give NCW component builds awareness of your organization’s needs and seeks funding from the community to help reach your request goal.
Give NCW is a crowdfunding effort through an online grant catalog featuring the Regional Impact Grants awarded. CFNCW promotes Give NCW across the region and invites the general public to donate toward completing the remainder of your funding request. CFNCW will provide regular incentives (which may include matches and bonuses) to motivate giving.
Activities considered for support:
- Programs and projects that serve a broad sector of the community (or a particularly vulnerable or at-risk population) and help resolve important existing or emerging community issues
- Programs and projects that will enable nonprofit and charitable agencies to reduce costs, increase efficiency and move toward self-sufficiency
- “Seed Grants” to initiate promising new projects and programs so that such projects and programs are able to demonstrate their usefulness to the community
- Final funding for capital campaigns. Capital campaign must be at least 70% complete before CFNCW will consider for a Regional Impact Grant
- General operating support

CFNCW will award a portion of the grant request (up to 75%), based on several factors, and the remaining amount will be published on Give NCW for the public to help complete. For example, if your total project goal is $10,000 and you are awarded $7,000, the remaining $3,000 would be published on Give NCW. There is no maximum amount of funding that can be requested. However, the 2018 total grant awards ranged from $6,777 to $34,786 total. The median amount granted from CFNCW was $8,460 and the median amount raised through Give NCW was $8,228. The crowdfunding campaign results were widely varied; the least amount raised through Give NCW was $777 and the most raised was $26,786.
Grant funds must be expended within one year of award date.
