Redwood Credit Union (RCU), in partnership with RCU Community Fund, The Press Democrat, and Senator Mike McGuire, is now accepting financial donations to aid relief efforts and assist victims of the 2017 North Bay fires. 100% of your donations will go directly to support those affected by the fires. Because the devastating fires affected numerous counties, you will have the opportunity to donate to the county of your choosing, including Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, and Lake County. You may also choose to donate to all counties (your funds will be distributed equally among all four counties).

Hundreds of faculty, staff, and students have lost everything, but we will rebuild together. If you are able to help, please donate to the SRJC Fire Relief Fund. These funds will be directly distributed to the SRJC community. Please visit: firerelief.santarosa.edu
A raging firestorm is ravaging Sonoma County right now, destroying more than 2,800 structures in Santa Rosa alone and burning tens of thousands of acres every day. Countless numbers of people have lost absolutely everything.
After the frenzy and chaos of a devastating disaster like this one passes, the long road to recovery and rebuilding begins—and it is here that philanthropy can play a distinct and critical role. With our deep relationships with local nonprofits, government officials, and community leaders, community foundations are often in the best position to hold funds, make grants, and support our communities.
In recognition of our critical role, Community Foundation Sonoma County has launched the Sonoma County Resilience Fund to address the mid to long-term needs of our community.
Rotary of Sonoma Valley will coordinate delivery of any needed service, goods, or funds in the days and weeks to come for Sonoma Valley Fire victims, evacuees, and first responders. The club is one of over 34,000 clubs comprising the largest service organization in the world. Our club supports our local and international community through financial and hands-on support with a focus on our youth. 100% of the proceeds from this campaign will go to continuing the work Rotary of Sonoma Valley members are already doing to support fire victims, evacuees and first responders. The need is only beginning.
