Great leaders propel our Community Foundation

It has been a banner week for the Community Foundation of North Central Washington. The organization topped $50 million in assets, which put them in the top five such foundations in the state, and a record-breaking $408,000 in scholarships were awarded to local students.

The impact of the Community Foundation on this region cannot be overstated. The work of the foundation is fostering a culture of philanthropy and making it possible for those of us who live here to give back to the communities we love and make a tangible difference. They are teaching us that many small gifts can make an even bigger impact than the sizable contributions. If every one of us gave 5 percent of our estate to benefit the community, imagine the impact we could have on future generations.
