Give Methow 2020

We are grateful to the Community Foundation of North Central Washington (CFNCW) for their support of non-profit organizations in the Methow Valley.

Through the work and dedication of many individuals and CFNCW, we have been able to upgrade our historic building in Twisp. We have focused our latest improvements in the gym, a part of valley life for over 75 years. We have added acoustic sound panels to improve the quality of sound, and have added new windows where the old windows had been boarded up. We remodeled the kitchen for use during events such as holiday concerts and celebrations of life. We are proud of our work here and wish to continue for many years to come.

Our mission statement is “Honoring our Past, Caring for our Community, Building our Future.” These are action words meant to convey the active role we have played in this valley for more than a decade. Built in 1912 as a school, this building was rescued from the wrecking ball by community members who created a space for a library, teen center, and daycare. Over the years we have helped launch many worthwhile startup businesses such as Room One, Door #3 print arts, and Methow Valley Theatre.

We focus now on Phase 2 of our stage lighting project: bathing the stage with LED arrays to showcase all actors, musicians, and entertainers. To do it right, we have contracted with a professional stage lighting company in Seattle.

We hope you will choose to support the Methow Valley Community Center in our mission to keep this building vital and used by generations of locals. Give today! We can do amazing things together. Please join us on a virtual tour of the building, and soon we hope to see you at the next event.

Thank you!

Kirsten Ostlie, Executive Director
