Gretchen Weller Foundation

Ellensburg, WA

Gretchen Weller Foundation mission is to bridge financial gaps for friends and neighbors in Kittitas County facing a cancer diagnosis.  Besides medical expenses, cancer is costly in many ways, especially for those living in Kittitas County with treatment in Seattle or Yakima (72-200 miles round trip).  GWF provides support and services uniquely targeted for each individual situation to lift a burden, relieve stress, and bring joy for each family we support.  In 2020 they supported more than 50 families by providing support such as gift cards for food and fuel, vehicle maintenance, yard work, house cleaning, out of town lodging, and firewood delivery.  They have also covered rent/mortgage for recipients who have a greater financial need, to allow them to focus on cancer treatment and recovery.
