The fund was initially started with a gift from the Stewardship Endowment Fund and provided assistance to the families, nonprofits and organizations impacted by the 2014 Boles Fire in Weed, Ca. As of September 2017, three years after the fire, all funds had been disbursed as recommended by the local Long-Term Recovery Group grant review committee.

Applications for assistance from this and other funds managed by the Community Foundation can be found on our grants page.

This fund remains in place in order to provide future assistance tied to a specific event, should the need arise.
