North Bend, WA – On May 28, Encompass received a grant of $50,000 from the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe to support their services for children and families in the Snoqualmie Valley.

Over the past five decades, Encompass has become a recognized leader in the field of early child development and an essential resource for all families, regardless of their ability to pay. Like the Snoqualmie Tribe, Encompass passionately believes that every family deserves a place to turn when they need help.

This year, the Snoqualmie Tribe provided charitable donations to nonprofit organizations providing services in the following areas: Salmon Habitat Restoration, Snoqualmie Valley Community Services, Veterans Services, Native Services, Family Services, Senior/Elder Services, Arts & Culture, and Environmental Education. Other 2019 awardees include the Frye Art Museum, the Seattle Art Museum, and Long Live the Kings. The Tribe has donated more than $8 million to nonprofits serving Washington State communities since 2010.

“Donations like this one from the Snoqualmie Tribe are the lifeblood that keep our organization thriving,” said Encompass Executive Director, Nela Cumming. “We are so fortunate to have a neighbor like the Tribe here in the Snoqualmie Valley who sees the importance of supporting nonprofit services for our community.”
