Alano Club of Wenatchee
Give the Gift of Hope!
Alano Club of Wenatchee has been serving the communities in Chelan and Douglas counties for almost 50 years! It is the only organization in the valley open seven days a week (10am to 9pm) for individuals in, or seeking, substance recovery. As a recovery community organization, we are led and governed by people with, or connected to, lived experience. The Club provides a safe, social, supportive environment for peer-to-peer support; recovery meetings, social events, and activities; educational presentations and workshops; and staffed with recovery coaches to aid and assist with recovery plans and community referrals for education, employment, housing, behavioral health, and treatment. The Club advocates and partners with other community organizations focused on building the recovery community and expanding the support network to individuals in need. Your donation will bring hope on the path of recovery. Thank you for supporting this mission.
Alatheia Riding Center
Finish Strong!
Change a life with healing power of horses! Your gift will help Alatheia Riding Center participants, like Lupita, finish the year strong and will guarantee that their beneficial therapeutic riding programs continue into 2023. Alatheia serves children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities, from four NCW counties. Opportunities for inclusion, improved strength, balance, and coordination are just some of the benefits. Lupita, who is non-verbal, has also learned to communicate with her horse and volunteer team and now says, "Walk On" and "Whoa" while riding at Alatheia. Make a genuine impact. Donate and change a life.
Camp Fire NCW
Help Expand Resources to Reach More Youth in Our Community
Your donation goes directly to adding a diversity inclusion program coordinator to our team and towards providing camp scholarships for low-income youth. Camp Zanika is the ideal location for kids to learn new skills, have fun, make friends, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Youth will also experience the great outdoors firsthand (and unplugged) with guided explorations of our trails, lakes, and woods. The pandemic has affected so many youths in our community, at Camp Fire NCW, youth get to escape from the effects of pandemic and experience the social connections they have been lacking. These past 3 years we have learned how essential peer to peer interaction and time spent outdoors is for youth development. Last summer Camp Fire NCW/Camp Zanika gave over $27,000 in summer camp scholarships. We believe every child deserves to experience summer camp regardless of economic status. Evidence suggests that youth who attend summer camp gain a sense of self-worth and emotional intelligence. Our diversity inclusion program coordinator will ensure an environment of inclusiveness for kids with a wide variety of abilities and support needs. Our staff will work with parents and youth to support them before, during, and after camp. "Inclusive Programming" refers to the way that we support youth and create accessible spaces so that everyone can participate together. Overall, we are a community serving organization, the youth in our programs are today's leaders. Help us ensure that every young person in our programs feel safe, affirmed, supported, and has an equal opportunity to succeed. Give today!

Cascade Fisheries
Salmon Need Your Help!
Wild salmon and steelhead in our region are on the brink of extinction, the time to help is now! Over the past 22 years, Cascade Fisheries has improved salmon survival by removing migration barriers, replanting streamside forests, restoring instream habitat, and engaging and educating our communities. Since 2016 we have connected over 19,000 individuals from diverse communities to our salmon recovery efforts. Our K-12 education programs reach thousands of students each year providing the experience of raising salmon in classrooms and developing ways to save salmon. Your investment in our work will ensure our communities remain engaged in helping salmon and restoration of critical instream and streamside habitats continues.
Cashmere Museum and Pioneer Village
Collecting and Preserving Natural and Cultural History
Built by the community for the community, the Cashmere Museum & Pioneer Village has been a part of NCW life since 1959. You may have come here in grade school to learn about the Wenatchi (P'Squosa), or spent an afternoon with us for Apple Days, or feasted at a salmon bake in the '70s. You may have been one of the local high school kids who helped move the cabins to the Village in the late '50s, or the Boy Scouts who then helped re-assemble them. Or you may have spent hours pouring through the Congdon Collection, looking for the small, carved stone seahawk. Whatever your connection with us, the Museum is grateful for your support. Please consider donating this year to help us raise funds for educational programs and general operating expenses. Take a peek of our museum!
Chelan-Douglas CASA
Help Change a Child's Story
In an overburdened and complex child welfare system, having a caring adult advocating for their best interests can make a lasting difference for a child who has experienced abuse or neglect. A trained and qualified Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) will get to work on gathering information, making recommendations, and reporting their findings to the court. When children have a CASA, they are more likely to find a safe, permanent home, succeed in school, be half as likely to re-enter the foster care system, and have an opportunity to thrive. As one CASA states, "Becoming a part of a child's life and walking beside them in the often-traumatic dependency journey is a sweet privilege… all in all, being a CASA has meant investing in hope for a child's bright future." Your gift benefits every child who has been removed from their home due to abuse or neglect by guaranteeing that no vulnerable and at-risk child is left without a voice, or their needs overlooked. Show your commitment to children and youth in our community by supporting our cause and together we can change their story towards a brighter future.
Chelan-Douglas Community Action Council
Food Distribution Center Supporting 22 Food Pantries
We distribute approximately 2.5 million pounds of food each year to 22 food pantry and meal site programs with fresh fruit and produce, dry goods, canned products, and frozen beef, poultry, pork and seafood items. We are the primary source of nutritious food items for each pantry. Many rural areas of Chelan and Douglas County do not have a food pantry, but are supported by our Mobile Food Pantry. Our gleaning and Farm to Food Bank program contracts with 65 area famers, providing a source for gleaned products to reach families rather than produce going to waste, plus a program to support local farmers by purchasing products directly from them to supplement U.S. and Washington State commodities. We are committed to ensure a vibrant and resilient hunger relief network in Chelan and Douglas County!
Chelan Douglas County Volunteer Attorney Services
Your Gift of Justice Will Transform Lives
Access to justice offers dignity, hope, and healing. Just listen to Andres, Jesse, and Melody share how civil legal aid changed their lives in the video, Gifts of Justice. Their stories remind us how overwhelming legal problems can be — especially when you're living in poverty — and how access to legal help is truly transformational. When you support CDCVAS, you give the GIFT OF JUSTICE and ensure that free civil legal help is available when it matters most. Whether facing eviction, divorce, a custody battle, or bankruptcy, the journey to resolve a civil legal problem is often difficult and daunting. But your support means that others like Andres, Jesse, and Melody will not have to make that journey alone. Your Gifts of Justice offers the dignity, hope, and healing that transforms lives and strengthens our community. Will you give the Gift of Justice today?
Chelan Valley Hope
Raising Hope, Helping Families Out of Crisis
Chelan Valley Hope's "Raising Hope" fund offers a safety net for extraordinary needs for low-income families. This includes assistance with housing, homelessness prevention, prescriptions, medical, dental, vision, hearing, food, clothing, hygiene, coats, and more. Chelan Valley Hope connects people with resources for growth and long-term success. Each person has a case manager that assists them in developing a plan to achieve or restore solvency and offer life changing hope.
Chelan Valley Housing Trust
Frame the Future of Our Valley
Last year, Chelan Valley Housing Trust sold an attainable home to a family with two young children and parents with careers in healthcare and hospitality fields. Without this home, the family had no other options to stay in the Valley - they would be forced to relocate, the parents would need to commute long distances or find work elsewhere, their kids would be pulled from the school they know and love, and Chelan would lose committed professionals in these healthcare and hospitality fields that are vital to our community. Today, the family now experiences housing security, financial equity, and can continue to support two crucial industries in the Valley. "My kids can now keep going to the same school and graduate with kids they've known since kindergarten." Now they can live and work in the community they care so much about.
Children's Home Society of Washington
Create a Bright Future for Families
We believe there is no right way to be a family, but there is a right way to support one. Our family-focused approach connects each family with the right services at the right time so they are able to flourish. Moms like Rosalia, whose twins are thriving in preschool because she enrolled them in our early learning programs to overcome their speech delays. Or parents like Annie and Tom, who saw their relationship with their daughter dramatically improve through counseling and parenting support. And families like the Wakeyos, who were able to receive baby formula for their newborn during the nationwide shortage. Wherever a family's journey leads, Children's Home Society of Washington in Chelan and Douglas counties is here to support them.
Community Cultural Center of Tonasket

Garden Terrace Senior Living
"Raising Spirits" Elevator Modernization
The 40-year-old elevator at Garden Terrace low-income senior apartments can no longer find replacement parts. To modernize this vital 7-story piece of machinery will cost $300,000. And without this elevator, our mobility challenged residents will be forced to use the stairs. We have been able to secure $100,000 for the project but need your help to raise the rest -- to raise the residents!
Greater Leavenworth Museum
Upgrade of Our First Peoples Exhibit
After an exciting year in our new location, the Greater Leavenworth Museum is now embarking on expanding and upgrading our First Peoples exhibit. Partnering with members of the p'squosa tribe and our professional museum designer, we will be telling the story of our native neighbors as they want it told. We need your help to ensure a space and exhibit worthy of the subject and place we represent. Your gift will leave a lasting legacy for the Upper Wenatchee Valley and Greater Leavenworth area. Our updated exhibit and space is scheduled to be completed in early 2023. We hope to see you soon at the Greater Leavenworth Museum!
Green Okanogan
Our New Green Building
Green Okanogan has been providing recycling and reuse services to North Okanogan County since 2015. This past summer, with the help of our community, we were able to build a beautiful 50' x 50' storage building to keep our product dry. Our "Green Building" is perfect but we had to take out a $50,000 loan to pay for it. All donations to GiveNCW will go towards repayment of this loan.

Habitat for Humanity of the Greater Wenatchee Area
Help Build Strength, Stability, and Self-Reliance Through Shelter
At the beginning of construction, future homeowner Jane quietly shared that she would be the first person in her family to own a home. Jane grew up in a number of temporary living situations, including campers and tents, in any location where her parents could find work to support their family. It was the only way of life Jane knew until she found Habitat. Jane was excited to be working alongside friends, neighbors and people she had never met to build a house that she and her family could call their forever home. You can help bring strength, stability and self-reliance to a family like Jane's through shelter. Your gift will provide materials such as lumber, windows, cabinets and nails that will be crafted together by individuals in our community along with a deserving family to create a warm, loving place for them to call home.
Hand in Hand Immigration Services
Helping Legal Permanent Residents with Naturalization
Throughout NCW, there are thousands of legal permanent residents who have lived and worked in our communities for decades who just need help and encouragement to navigate the citizenship process. Since 2000, Hand in Hand Immigration Services has been a trusted place where local families turn to get accurate, up-to-date information on the citizenship process. Last year, Hand in Hand helped 100 legal permanent residents with their naturalization. This year Hand in Hand has helped 126 people, currently legally residing in our communities, to enjoy the full benefits of US citizenship – including exercising their right to vote and having a voice in our democracy. Our team of trained staff and volunteers can provide the knowledge and support they need to take that final step of reaching the American Dream. With your financial help we can help those families who struggle to make ends meet pay for application fees and other necessary expenses to make their dreams a reality. Please donate today to help us make our community a better place to live for all.

Resident Centered Assisted Living

Born from a series of Chelan town hall meetings, Heritage Heights has, for 27 years, been Chelan's only local licensed senior care housing option and is currently striving to expand capacity to serve more families in the Lake Chelan Valley. Heritage Heights would not exist without the support of its community partners and outstanding professional staff.
Hope Care Clinic
Hope in Action!
You may know a friend, family member, or neighbor who is suffering from severe tooth pain or depression. At Hope Care Clinic, we have the privilege to provide quality, compassionate medical, dental, and behavioral healthcare services to low-income, uninsured and underinsured adults in the NCW community and its surrounding areas. We partner with local working and retired dentists, medical providers, counselors, nurses, etc. Due to a significant rent increase, we had an unforeseen move to a new facility in June of 2022 so that we can continue to provide affordable services to our neighbors who need it most. This move was complicated by the expense to retrofit our new space, and multiple setbacks, causing an extended closure. The importance of our vital work and access to affordable care has never been more pressing and apparent until now as we have a lengthy list of patients waiting to provide the appropriate care which they would otherwise do without due to economic and other barriers. We are re-opening in Dec 2022, stronger and ready to serve patients again. Your generous gift will help us meet the needs of our patients. A $30 donation will allow us to help 1 patient be relieved of dental pain. A $100 investment provides medical care or behavioral health counseling to 5 patients. Together we can make a difference to build a strong and healthy community.
Icicle Creek Center for the Arts
Connecting Our Community to Inspiring Arts & Arts Education
When you give to Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, you provide world-class arts experiences and education to our community. This year, Icicle Creek is bringing six artist groups into classrooms throughout north central Washington so students can experience boisterous tap dancing, lyrical Indian folksongs, eclectic instrumental music and Indigenous stories and dances up-close. Emerging artists take next steps on their artistic journey through Icicle Creek's many camps and retreats. We offer our audiences chances to have a romping good time while being inspired at summer concerts in the Meadow, film festivals celebrating artistry and activism, joyful holiday shows, live opera on the big screen, and local collaborations that shine a spotlight on diverse voices and cultural perspectives. Your support is critical for the continuation of Arts that are accessible and delightful for all.
Indigenous Roots and Reparation Foundation
Support Culturally Educational Events!
The Indigenous Roots and Reparation Foundation (IRRF) is an Indigenous lead nonprofit established in 2021 to preserve history, culture, traditions and language through education and advocacy. IRRF hosted its first Huckleberry Camp in 2022. One of our main goals is to continue to create a space on our ancestral homelands to gather in community. In the Wenatchi Valley, Indigenous people have no designated space. We envision in our future a community center space as a place where we can gather with our relatives. In our rural valley with few public transportation options, Native people have to travel long distances to access resources, whether they are seeking traditional medicine or educational resources. Huckleberry Camp is designated for tribal members, providing an opportunity to be out on the land with relatives. With a huge initial signup in 2022, we are looking into options for 2023. Our first Huckleberry Camp was hosted at Basecamp Cascadia, families gathered at a retreat center to share stories, commune, and--of course--gather huckleberries. This was weekend event had 40 Tribal members traveling from across Washington State, and IRRF was able to prepare meals, engage all with culturally significant activities and most importantly provide an opportunity to be on our ancestral homelands. We've also hosted other events like the Indian Hemp Field Trip, and partnering with local organizations for educational opportunities for our community. Board members have visited schools to share history as well as joined hikes with students on the homelands. Your donation to IRRF ensures we can continue to host culturally education events in 2023.

NCW Community Toy Drive
Toys for Children in Need
The NCW Community Toy Drive's mission is to ensure children in need in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties receive a special gift during the Christmas season. Your donation will help us purchase gifts and specific items that we know children and teens need. We work with several local agencies who help identify kids in need and distribute the toys. In recent years, we have seen an increase in the number of teens becoming a part of the distribution, as well as homeless youth. This last season we were able to provide gifts for 129 homeless teens. With the continued impact on the economy, we are anticipating another increase in the numbers served for the teens age group. Many community families will have unmet needs for their children. On behalf of the children, we want to share a simple statement made by an elementary age child: "This is for me, are you kidding!" Thank you for your support!
North Valley Hospital Foundation
Helping to Grow Local Health Care
Our North Valley Hospital district, located 25 miles from Canada, serves a sparse population with its Critical Access Hospital, whole family health clinic, 2 physical therapy clinics, and an extended care facility. NVH Foundation members are proud to assist this high quality and personalized patient care standard. For the Extended Care residents who are prone to falling out of bed, NVHF supplied special low beds that can lower to the floor which eliminated the need for hospital-like safety rails. To keep minds and bodies active, a full Activities Cart was stocked last year. The handicap bus purchased accommodates 3 wheelchair passengers, along with seating for up to 12 others. These day rides in the familiar nearby hills provides hours of enjoyment along memory lane. To increase public awareness of our district's services and capabilities, NVHF funds the production and mailing of its twice-a-year newsletter. NVHF supports the medical staff by funding scholarships, with $2,250 paid this fall: 2 for employees and 1 for a newly enrolled medical student. Education can also be fun as seen at the Ice Cream Socials, where commissioners, nursing and administration staff join NVHF members to offer ice cream cups to the public at farmers markets and Garlic Festival to answer questions and discuss health care. NVHF works to make a difference in our local health care.
Northwest Immigrant Rights Project
Protecting Families, Strengthening Communities
Many immigrants in our community face deportation and separation from their families simply because they cannot afford an attorney. Since there is no right to an attorney in immigration court, low-income immigrants who have a legal right to remain here must navigate the complex immigration legal system alone. With your help, this project will provide legal representation so they can access protections for which they qualify under law. Your support will ensure that members of our community—regardless of how much money they have or where they were born—will be protected from violence, stay together with their families, and have opportunities in work and education. Our Vision: Northwest Immigrant Rights Project strives for justice and equity for all persons, regardless of where they were born. Our Values and Principles: Dignity, Fairness, Solidarity, Self-Determination, Safety, and Inclusion.
Numerica Performing Arts Center
Keep the Arts Alive in Downtown Wenatchee
Located in the heart of downtown Wenatchee at the Stanley Civic Center, the Numerica Performing Arts Center offers something for everyone year-round in an intimate 550-seat venue. Pull back the curtain, and you may see your neighbor dancing, singing, acting, playing, or working behind the scenes on the Numerica PAC stage and consider it home to the creative side of them that brings them joy. Step into the box office, and you may hear a patron asking when a speaker who moved them to tears or a musician who inspired their teenage nostalgia will return. Pass through the lobby, and you may experience the wonder in a child's eyes at seeing the magic of the arts, literature, or science come alive – perhaps for the first time ever. Accessible ticket prices and rental income cover less than 50% of the funds needed to maintain and operate the Numerica PAC's facility and organization. Your donation supports a space where arts and culture can continue to enrich our youth, downtown spaces, and local community today and for generations to come.
Okanogan Behavioral HealthCare
Highland Center for Mental Wellness and Substance Use Recovery
Okanogan Behavioral HealthCare's (OBHC) Highland Center (formerly Highland Clubhouse) is a place for personal growth, development and renewal. It's a warm and welcoming environment where individuals can learn to manage their mental health, overcome substance use disorders and/or emotional trauma, and gain living skills while progressing toward their personal definition of success and happiness. Highland Center offers encouragement, supportive social relationships, therapeutic group sessions, and other healing activities, all at no cost to participants. Past Give NCW contributions helped provide home visits, meals and activities to program participants who were isolated and lonely during Covid health and safety restrictions. Please give and add your support for their transformations.
Okanogan County Child Development Association
Inspire a Love for Reading
You can inspire a love of reading. This is your opportunity to help children in Okanogan County and Bridgeport increase their literacy skills through the Dolly Parton Imagination Program. OCCDA is an affiliate for this program, which provides free, age appropriate, quality books mailed to each child's home every month. Before receiving books from our program, 40% of registered parents had 10 or less books in their homes and 27.5% of parents read to their children once a week or less. Since receiving books, 87.5% of parents report reading to their children three times a week or more and 70% of parents report their children ask to be read to more often. The Dolly Parton Imagination Library Program provides richer home literacy environments, increases children's interest in reading, and helps children develop emerging literacy skills. Your generous donation will go directly towards putting books in the hands of local children.
Okanogan County Community Action Council
Food Pantries in Okanogan
Food pantries in Okanogan County have been experiencing food shortages as a result of the increased demand during the pandemic and high rates of inflation. Food, gas, and other basic necessities are more expensive, forcing people to make decisions on how to cover higher heating bills, rent, and costs for daily living. The Okanogan County Community Action Council is collecting donations to help support 9 food pantries in Okanogan County. Every donation counts and is greatly appreciated. Okanogan County remains one of the most distressed counties in Washington State with 25% of its residents living at or below the poverty level. Each year, the food pantries collect and distribute more than one million pounds of food to over 8,000 residents, many of whom are children. More than 250 seniors rely on special food commodity deliveries each week. Supply chain issues have created shortages of food at a time when there is new demand for it and more residents are using the food pantries to help make ends meet. Private donations of cash help purchase special items like meat and dairy products during the holiday season. Turkeys, hams, and other holiday favorites are not typical food pantry items. We strive to provide those items during the holiday season through private donation support. Your donation helps support families with children and seniors with a little something extra and special this holiday season. Thank you so much for your gift. Happy Holidays.
Okanogan County Search and Rescue Association
Help Save Lives
When you are lost, cold, hungry, or injured, hours seem like days, and days seem like a lifetime. The ability to respond rapidly to a lost or injured person incident requires incredible dedication from an all-volunteer organization like OCSAR. Many hours of training are needed, the calls rarely come at a convenient time, and the missions can be long. Experienced searchers know that when someone is in trouble, they must drop everything, grab their gear, and go. This level of commitment is required of our members and is rare in volunteer organizations. If you are lost or injured in the woods or the mountains, we are there for you 24/7. Ground searchers, dog team, rope-rescue, water response, drones, and more. Please help keep us sharp. Help fund our ongoing training needs.
Okanogan Highlands Alliance
Restoring and Protecting Nature in the Okanogan Highlands
Engaging our community in the protection and restoration of the natural environment is core to Okanogan Highlands Alliance's (OHA's) mission. Amid the unique and diverse landscapes of northeastern Okanogan County, OHA encourages education about the natural world. We seek to spark appreciation for the land, ecosystems and wildlife, and energize people to make choices and take actions that conserve resources and protect clean water and natural habitats. OHA advocates for measures to clean up pollution at the now-closed gold mine on Buckhorn Mountain, restores habitat and wetland function on Myers Creek, stewards a 65-acre Wetland and Wildlife Preserve on the south end of Lost Lake, and invites the community to learn about, care for, advocate for, and recreate in the Okanogan Highlands throughout the year. Your donation will galvanize OHA's efforts to support education, restoration, and public participation focused on protecting the environment on which life and the well-being of future generations depends.
Okanogan Regional Humane
Low Cost Spay/Neuter Project
Okanogan Regional Humane has been working tirelessly to provide low cost spay/neuter and emergency veterinary care to Okanogan County. This year many animal welfare organizations were overwhelmed with the number of unintentional litters of cats and dogs surrendered or in need of veterinary care. ORH exists to try to prevent the overwhelming number of surrendered animals flooding shelters that was experienced this year. Veterinary care can be a cost that many families can not afford, which has contributed to the current animal rescue crisis. Spay and neuter programs are the only way to stop the overpopulation at the source. The reservoir is full. It is time to turn off the faucet.
Okanogan Valley Orchestra and Chorus
Home Sweet(er) Home
OVOC has been working on making our HOME a lot sweeter! Generous donations have made it possible to reroof the building and redo the electrical entry. We have been busy with repairs, cleaning, building storage, and organizing. We've also started on painting the exterior, but we ran into difficulties with the old paint and we look forward to completing this project next year. In the long term, we plan to host small events for our members and community, but first things first: We need to fund a fully accessible bathroom by 2024. We know that we cannot serve all of our members and community without one!
Our Valley Our Future
Building Greater Community Resiliency
One of the big goals behind Our Valley Our Future's new 2022-26 Action Plan is to build community resiliency through "upstream" initiatives, including a climate action plan, a bilingual wildfire preparedness campaign, early childhood and career connected learning programs, a community-wide approach to creating healthier lifestyles, diverse leadership programs, civic events and activities to heal community divisiveness, and Internet access for all. OVOF is working to ensure each initiative has the upfront resources and organizational backbone to successfully implement these broadly-supported resiliency solutions. An investment in Our Valley Our Future is an investment in the community's future. We cannot do this without you.
Pateros Brewster Community Resource Center
Essential Resources for Community Resilience
PBCRC serves the local community by hosting and providing access to programs and services that impact economic resilience and mental/emotional health. This year we've seen an increase in individuals and families needing emergency funds just to stay in their homes, keep their lights on, and access groceries. Our crew of local volunteers also delivers Food and Care Kits to those in isolation with COVID throughout Okanogan County and Bridgeport. Okanogan WorkSource now has an office space at PBCRC to provide employment services locally 3 days a week. They play a big role in helping people pay their bills and support their families through prolonged illness, seasonal unemployment, job finding & skills training. And our Technology Center is open weekdays, staffed by our Americorps Tech Center Navigator. These spaces are available for community access to computers, printing, a Zoom cart, digital camera, and conference room space for classes and meetings. When the going gets tough, "we're here to help—what's on your mind?" Your gift will go toward making sure those in our communities have a local resource to get them through tough times.

Small Miracles has been feeding children in the Wenatchee Valley since 2012. To date, over 175,000 meals have been served to children who are hungry, helping families make ends meet.

Sustainable NCW
Creating a Roadmap for a Low-Carbon, Resilient Community
We are becoming all too familiar with the impacts that the climate crisis is having in NCW, whether that be excessive heat, unhealthy air quality from smoke, or wildfires threatening our homes and property. Now is the time to come together as a community to reduce the emissions that are contributing to these changes. Sustainable NCW is working to transform our valley into a model for a post-carbon economy that not only reduces these impacts but also helps to create jobs, improves public health, retains our beautiful natural environment, and builds community resiliency. We are collaborating with other organizations throughout Chelan and Douglas counties to develop a regional plan that will reduce emissions and maximize the value of our hydropower. This project will be at least an 18 month endeavor and will cost about $15,000 in staff time. Support this important work by contributing today. Every dollar you give goes toward the effort for a better future for our valley.

The Brave Warrior Project
Give Joy, Change a Life
This year, The Brave Warrior Project is launching our Give Joy, Change a Life fundraising campaign to raise funds to provide the children, youth and families in our care with everything they need to have a positive and empowering experience. As our team was planning this campaign, we couldn't help but reflect on the true meaning and impact of joy itself. Raising children and adults impacted by disability or chronic illness can be isolating, financially straining, and overwhelming - there is such a need for joy. The Give Joy, Change a Life campaign not only helps The Brave Warrior Project ensure our families feel supported and less isolated, but it creates a space for joy and celebration. What's even more special is that this "joy" is not only felt by our families, but it permeates throughout our community. Giving and having joy is important. It's necessary. Joy lifts us up and helps us feel a sense of belonging. Our Give Joy, Change a Life campaign is about so much more than making a donation and providing financial support. By supporting our campaign, you are eliminating barriers for children with disabilities and chronic illness. Give Joy this holiday season, and donate to local children, youth, and families with disabilities and chronic illness today by donating to our Give NCW campaign. Watch this video to learn more.

Upper Valley MEND
Meeting the Needs of Cashmere and Upper Valley Residents
Upper Valley MEND works to meet the food, housing, emergency financial assistance, and wellness needs of local families struggling to make ends meet. Dawn and Michael were facing the winter in a tent at a dispersed campsite. Upper Valley MEND helped them fix the brakes on their truck, making it safe to drive. We also helped with the first month's rent at a RV park with facilities. They both now have full-time jobs. They no longer qualify for government benefits, so they use the Community Cupboard food bank, where there is no income qualification barrier, to supplement their groceries. They are putting the money they save toward buying a RV to live in. Thanks to community support, Dawn and Michael were able to get back on their feet and plan for a better future. Your support gives your neighbors the help they need when a crisis hits, and helps build a healthy, vibrant community for all.

"You have cancer". Three dreaded words no one ever wants to hear. Sadly, each year in North Central Washington over 1,400 individuals will receive a cancer diagnosis. This brings a journey that is emotionally and financially overwhelming, especially in our current economic times.

Just some of the free services we provide are: Gas cards - to ease the costly burden of travel to and from treatments; Wigs - for those losing their hair due to chemotherapy and radiation; Nutritional drinks - to supply nutrients when eating becomes too difficult due to nausea and pain; and so much more. We are powered by giving people like you with generous donations to help our mission stay possible. Cancer does not discriminate; not based on age, race, income, or status, and until there is a cure for cancer it is our honor and mission to help all of our NCW cancer warriors. Your donation will improve the lives of our local cancer warriors and their families, and give them strength, courage and hope. Watch our video to learn more.

Wenatchee Valley Follies Guild and Children's Foundation
Fullfilling Basic Needs of Local Children
WVFG&CF has been raising money and contributing it to our community needs since 1948. During the last 75 years, the Guild has raised over 1 Million dollars and has used the funds to support local community needs like health care, Women's Resource Center, Senior Center, CASA, toy drives, coat drives and many more worthwhile causes. Today, the Guild focuses on basic needs of the children in our valley. We work with local organizations and school family advocates to find the kids that need food, clothing and safety. WVFG&CF does not use any of the funds raised for administration - 100% of donations go to children in need. We see our Guild as a lean, boots on the ground organization. We are helping bridge gaps between needs and programs where kids might not qualify. One particular child we helped was being bypassed by normal agencies that help children. He was in the wrong county, mom had filled out the wrong paperwork, but the reality was he was living in a car with his mom. We were able to cut through red tape and get them into housing. Today, he has graduated from high school, has a job and is paying the rent for him and his mom. We often partner with local businesses to provide, coats, equipment for school programs, food, safe housing, and creatively find solutions to provide for our local children. We actively seek out the legitimate needs of our local youth to solve their insecurities and provide them what every child deserves, a safe opportunity to thrive.
