Community Disaster Relief Fund
How was the money used?
- The Community Foundation worked with nonprofit and government stakeholders to ensure that funds flowed quickly to those most in need and established safeguards to secure proper distribution of the funds. This was a two-step process:
Short-term support: funds for immediate relief were distributed to food, shelter, animal, health, and/or to large scale relief agencies to provide such support.
Long-term support: funds for long-term relief were distributed towards rebuilding and recovery efforts to reestablish residency or for relocation. In addition, most community assets were restored in large part due to collaborative efforts cultivated by the Weed Long Term Recovery Group.
What about fees?
- 100% of donated funds for the Boles Fire went directly to provide assistance and fund recovery efforts as the Community Foundation decided to make an exception for this fund regarding all contributions for the Boles Fire and did not assess any administrative fees.
