SUCCESS: YOUR GIFT WAS DOUBLED!!
Heartfelt thanks to you, our community, who stepped up to the challenge, maximized the generous $150,000 matching grant from the Community Foundation Sonoma County, and enabled us to exceed our $300,000 goal. At 2020 year-end, the “Healdsburg Forever Community Impact Fund” rang in $360,000, with gifts from close to 100 donors! Thank You for this collective philanthropic response to the needs of our community! The Healdsburg Forever Grants Committee is already partnering with community nonprofits to assess the most pressing community needs in order to direct funds quickly.

Our community needs you now more than ever
1 in 3 people in our community face food insecurity
Job loss has led to housing uncertainty, mental health challenges and food insecurity
Loss of health insurance inhibits people from seeking medical care
School closures create uncertainties around childcare, school lunches and internet access required for virtual learning
Given the wide-reaching impact of a global pandemic coupled with successive years of wildfires, Healdsburg Forever identified food security, shelter, and healthcare as top priorities in 2020. We granted two rounds of emergency funding, totaling $142,000, to eight key nonprofits serving these critical needs. Together, these organizations have touched over 8,000 lives in our community, delivering more than 1 million pounds of food, providing over 16,000 health care visits, and helping hundreds of residents secure shelter.
However, the demand for services from these and other nonprofits continues to grow exponentially. COVID, the economic recession and the fires all weigh most heavily on the same population groups. New community needs continue to emerge.
