Back to Basics

Just $10 or More Will Help Students and their Families

It's been a tough year for many students and their families in North Central Washington. When schools closed in the Spring and instruction moved online, we learned that families were struggling to care for their children, put food on the table, and access basic needs.

Just $10 or more through Back to Basics will support a student and their family in need, identified by teachers and liaisons in their schools who know and understand the hardships they face.

100% of your donation will be directed to the school district(s) of your choosing, and they will ensure those funds directly support families who desperately need your help.

The Community Foundation of NCW has kickstarted the campaign with $55,000 that will be disbursed among all districts based on income disparities. Please join us in helping our students and their families this year!

TOTAL RAISED: $44,767
