The Fire Relief Fund will enable local donors to make gifts to support those impacted by the wildfires throughout California. The Foundation will redistribute funding to the closest community foundations near the disaster to direct to local agencies who are on the ground in their communities providing immediate support to those most in need. The Community Foundation has waived all administrative fees so 100% of donations will be used for grantmaking.

Disaster Support Fund

The Community Foundation has a Disaster Support Fund to assist communities affected by natural disasters or pandemics. Donations to the fund will provide both immediate relief and support rebuilding and recovery efforts in the aftermath of the recent devastation. Grants from the fund will be distributed to nonprofit agencies and organizations directly assisting individuals to meet needs as they arise and to deploy resources where they are most needed. The Community Foundation has waived all administrative fees so 100% of donations will be used for grantmaking. In March 2020 the Fund was opened to support nonprofits serving populations impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
