Dear Friends of the Foundation,
Extremely dangerous wildfires continue throughout California's wine country, and donations from the public are needed to help offset the cost of the extraordinary emergency response services required during — and following — the emergency. The community foundations in Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino counties have jointly established a fund to collect donations from the public to address a range of needs:
Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino counties’ community foundations have jointly mobilized the Northern California Fire Fund to respond to the devastating fires that have displaced thousands of residents, and have destroyed vast numbers of homes and businesses in their region.
The foundations have begun convening decision-makers from the nonprofit sector and local government to assess urgent needs, identify short term gaps and gather information that will inform longer-term recovery efforts.
Tax-deductible contributions to the Fund are welcome in any amount.
Like you, our thoughts are with those whose lives are affected by these devastating wildfires. We are always heartened by the Sacramento region's response to crises — on local and national scales — and, as ever, we appreciate your generosity.
Foundation Fundholders: You can make a grant from your fund to this response effort using DonorCentral. Please contact Chelsea Fahr, Donor Services Officer, with any questions at email@example.com or (916) 921-7723.
