Welcome to SCAF!

The Stanwood-Camano Area Foundation is committed to fostering and promoting a culture of philanthropy in our local community. We work with community members, businesses, and other local non-profit organizations to connect people who care with the causes and initiatives that matter most to them. We build a healthy, sustainable community through a variety of programs that provide basic needs, promote arts & culture, support education, and enhance quality of life.
