We support the environment, the arts and history through innovative collaboration in North Central Washington

We strive to make a positive difference in the quality and health of all life in North Central Washington. Our work is inspired by a vision of North Central Washington as a region where nature, the arts and the area’s natural and human history inspire an appreciation, understanding and stewardship of this special place.

Six lead partner organizations - Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, Chelan-Douglas Land Trust, Methow Arts Alliance, The Nature Conservancy, the Trust for Public Land and the Wenatchee River Institute - lead the work of the Icicle Fund. Representatives of these organizations and selected community members serve on the board of directors and design, review, sponsor and implement specific projects and activities of interest to the Fund.

We provide direct cash support to organizations that enhance the quality and health of life in North Central Washington; fund acquisition of land with conservation values; and actively identify and help to develop opportunities for partnerships and programs that advance the arts, protect the environment and promote natural and cultural history in North Central Washington.
