CFMC Creates Soberanes Fire Fund

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 assisting individuals and organizations to meet needs as they arise.

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 and other immediate relief or long-term recovery support for the affected residents. The fund will provide a trusted repository for philanthropic assets to be directed specifically for this purpose.
