Healdsburg Forever Community Impact Fund

DONATE NOW

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.

A gift of:

$10,000 would provide a month of temporary housing for 6 or more families.

$5,000 would cover the cost of care for 20 uninsured health care visits.

$500 would provide nutritious fruits & vegetables for 1,600 individuals.

Join us, together we create hope, we cultivate connections, and we nurture and sustain a more equitable community.
