A raging firestorm is ravaging Sonoma County right now, destroying more than 2,000 structures and rapidly burning tens of thousands of acres in the first 48 hours alone. Countless numbers of people have lost absolutely everything.
After the frenzy and chaos of a devastating disaster like this one passes, the long road to recovery and rebuilding begins—and it is here that philanthropy can play a distinct and critical role. With our deep relationships with local nonprofits, government officials, and community leaders, community foundations are often in the best position to hold funds, make grants, and support our communities.
In recognition of our critical role, Community Foundation Sonoma County has launched the Sonoma County Resilience Fund to address the mid to long-term needs of our community. Learn more about the purpose of the Resilience Fund.
You can quickly and easily support the Resilience Fund in the following ways:

We will update this page as we learn more about organizations providing immediate relief to those impacted by the fire.
Our hearts may be broken, but our spirits are not. In the face of this destruction, we know that we will recover, as the resilient community that we are. Be safe, be well, and be strong.
Thank you for your generosity and commitment to Sonoma County.
