The Sonoma County Resilience Fund

Sonoma County has seen unimaginable hardship these past three 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 and massive wildfires coming at the same time.


We launched the Sonoma County Resilience Fund in 2017 to support our community’s long-term disaster recovery and resilience.


We have made more than $15 million in grants to support nonprofit organizations working on the front lines of disaster recovery.


Our work continues.

The Sonoma County Resilience Fund is the only long-term recovery fund in Sonoma County dedicated to supporting residents impacted by disaster.

We offer grants to nonprofit organizations working in three core focus areas:



individuals impacted by disaster



the long-term effects of trauma



solutions for our community
