History

Icicle Fund envisions a future where North Central Washington residents and visitors understand and appreciate our region’s past

We prioritize funding of organizations and projects that work towards this vision.

Cultural and Natural History awards have supported the creation of museum exhibits, the publication of books, the development of archive-quality storage space, the creation of a float depicting a Native American legend, and the remodeling of an old house to serve as a new interpretive center. Grants in this area have also helped organizations develop strategic and development plans, receive training in best practices, and reopen a museum that had been closed for two years. Other cultural and natural history projects supported by the Icicle Fund include an oral history project and filming documentary footage on local luminaries.
