CFMC Soberanes Fire Fund

Newson August 1st, 2016No Comments Leave a comment

The Community Foundation for Monterey County (CFMC) has created the Soberanes Fire Fund to assist the affected community in recovery efforts from the #SoberanesFire which began July 22, 2016. Donations to this fund will provide support in the aftermath of the fire. Grants from the fund will be distributed to nonprofit agencies and organizations directly assisting individuals to meet needs as they arise. We are working in close partnership with the Coast Property Owners Association to deploy resources where they are most needed.

The CFMC has waived all administrative fees so 100% of donations will be used for grantmaking. The funds will be used to make grants to agencies providing emergency assistance, health and human services, short term housing/rental assistance, reimbursement of equipment and supplies, and other immediate relief or long-term recovery support for the affected residents. The fund is a trusted repository for philanthropic assets to be directed specifically for this purpose. (Click here to read more at www.cfmco.org)
