In late June, Children’s Home Society of Washington was named one of three finalists for a $50,000 Endowment Grant from the Community Foundation of North Central Washington.

My staff and I were excited and thankful to learn in July that we were recipients of this amazing opportunity from the Community Foundation of North Central Washington. An endowment grant is where the money is invested and income earned on the grant may be spent to support a wide variety of children’s services.

We first opened our offices in Wenatchee in 1954, and we think this award reflects Children’s Home Society of Washington’s deep and longstanding commitment to children and families in Douglas and Chelan counties.

Donors in the Wenatchee region now will have the option of giving to the Community Foundation of North Central Washington and designate those funds to Children’s Home Society of Washington.

We hope to be able to grow the endowment fund, so we have an increasing stream of income every year to help future generations.
