The Sonoma County Resilience Fund

Sonoma County has seen unimaginable hardship these past five years.

A fire that destroyed over 5,300 homes in 2017, flooding and a 77,000 acre fire in 2019, and now the compounding burden of the coronavirus.

Since launching in 2017, we have made more than $15 million in grants to support nonprofit organizations working on the front lines of disaster recovery in Sonoma County.

Our work continues.
