We are the hub of philanthropy for the county, connecting people, ideas and resources to benefit all who live here. We work with philanthropists to create plans that will make an impact in our community and become part of their family’s legacy.

Community Foundation Sonoma County has helped the community develop simple, powerful, and highly personal approaches to charitable giving. Whether you’re an aspiring new donor, a seasoned philanthropist, or wondering how to amplify your effectiveness in giving, we can help you develop a giving strategy that meets your needs.
Our investment in well-being is carried out through five broad program areas: Education, Arts and Culture, Health and Human Services, Environment, and Animal Welfare. Each area supports components of strengthening and sustaining the well-being of Sonoma County’s people and places through a combination of competitive grants, multi-year initiatives and convenings.
