A sense of place is central to the Icicle Fund’s mission, as is the belief that connection to the land and the communities we visit and live in are nurtured through artistic expression and imagination, an understanding of our past, and experience in and love for our natural landscapes and wildlife. The three areas in which the Icicle Fund awards grants are Environment, the Arts, and Cultural and Natural History. Integration of two or more of these areas can be very powerful.
We envision a future where intact landscapes, representative of the biodiversity of the region, provides opportunities for all people to connect with the land and water through stewardship capacity and policies that inspire long-term commitment to place.
We envision a culture where diversity of the arts is accessible and valued as a critical component of vibrant communities in North Central Washington.
We envision a future where North Central Washington residents and visitors understand and appreciate our region’s past.
