Help Our Neighbors in Chelan

Dozens of homes and businesses have been destroyed by catastrophic wildfire. Help today and we'll match your generous contribution.

Once again, families and businesses have been hit by wildfire in Eastern Washington. The photos have been dramatic and heartbreaking.

We are asking that you step up and help those whose lives have been devastated by fires that continue to blaze across the state.

Donate now and we'll double your gift to help those devastated by these fires.

Donate today to help those who have lost so much.
Your contribution of $250, $100 or even $25 will make a difference - and we'll match your generosity.         Designate for Eastern WA fire fund.


Give Now

Our mailing address is:
610 Market St. #201
Kirkland, WA 98033 

The NW Republican Community Fund has once again partnered with the Community Foundation of North Central Washington to help support those who have already lost so much.

Your help is critical. Last year the federal government actually
refused to help homeowners hit by the fires. Charities stepped in where the government let people down.

To find other ways you can help your neighbors in Washington move away from government dependence to self-sufficiency,
visit www.nwrcf.org.

And a second note from NWRCF…

RSVP to Support Your Candidate and Local Charities
September 23rd at 6 p.m. at the Redmond VFW Hall

The NWRCF will hold a GOP Presidential Forum featuring local representatives of the presidential candidates, highlighting how they will promote self-sufficiency and charity.

Then a straw poll of those in attendance will be taken. Each “ballot” will cost $25. (Like a Chicago election, there will be no restrictions on the number of ballots you can purchase.) All proceeds will go towards supporting
Northwest Republican Community Fund charities.
We will make the results known to local and national media. Thus this will be an opportunity to help your candidate rise above the fray.

You will also be able to talk with representatives of some of our supported charities so you can learn the great work they are doing in our community. 

NW Republican Community Fund Presidential Forum
September 23, 6 p.m.
VFW Hall   4330 148th Avenue NE, Redmond

RSVP  Join us to celebrate conservative generosity and presidential candidates who understand that promoting self-sufficiency is true compassion.
