When people gather at Pybus Market, great things happen!


The mission of the Pybus Market Charitable Foundation is to enhance the quality of
life in the greater Wenatchee valley, now and for generations to come.


The Pybus Market Charitable Foundation was founded in 2012 by Mike and JoAnn Walker to establish a public market for the greater community benefit. The Foundation’s strategy is to leverage the power, popularity and physical infrastructure of Pybus Public Market to create and maintain charitable activities at the Market benefiting a broad cross-section of the community. By intention, the Foundation engages in a broad set of charitable activities at Pybus Market, rather than a narrow set.

The Foundation focuses on six core areas:

  • null
    Community Diversity and Civic Engagement which includes forums and educational community events, naturalization services and voter registration drives.
  • null
    Providing space and programs to serve the poor, homeless, distressed and underprivileged. Make a Difference Day is the cornerstone of the Foundation’s activities.
  • null
    Fostering the arts by supporting artistic educational programs and performances.
  • null
    Promoting health and education through access to healthcare services, support groups, engagement and forums on subjects ranging from health conscience cooking classes to lectures on the history of the Valley.
  • null
    Providing family friendly activities and a safe place for children to discover and learn through games and competitions.
  • null
    Hosting and promoting other charitable activities and non-profits, providing free and reduced rate facility fees for gatherings and worship.

To sustain these efforts in the long term, public sponsorships and individual donations are crucial.
