The WSVEF raises money through fundraisers such as the Gorge Grape Escape and through direct community donations. The funds we raise benefit our schools in three significant ways:
Mengis Capital Management has managed our endowment fund since 2008. Our long term goal is to have $2M in the endowment fund. As of Fall 2017, $570,000 has been invested and the value of the fund is $1,025,343.
Our Board prides itself on being fiscally responsible with the funds the community has entrusted to our organization. We have a strong history of managing our funds well. Matt Hanson from Proactive Management keeps our books in good order. Accountants from Friend & Reagan, CPA, work with our Treasurer to file our taxes.
