Fire Years of Gratitude

The Butte Strong Fund, a partnership of the North Valley Community Foundation, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and the Aaron Rodgers NorCal Fire Recovery Fund, aims to provide long-term recovery to communities impacted by the Camp Fire.

After granting out more than $67 million over six years for Camp Fire projects, the Butte Strong Fund grant program has ended. We expect to remain involved in recovery projects in the Camp Fire footprint and will announce the extent of any new grant program in early 2024.

AREAS OF WORK

HOUSING

The Butte Strong Fund is working with community organizations to benefit displaced families.

HEALTH & WELLNESS

The effect of sudden changes in population redistribution can have a big impact on health and wellness for the community as a whole.

EDUCATION

It's traumatic for a child to lose a home. It's exponentially traumatic to lose a school as well.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

When people talk about what was destroyed in the Camp Fire, they often talk about places that were symbolic of the area.

BUSINESS RECOVERY

Hundreds of businesses were destroyed in the Camp Fire. Others were damaged. Those that have managed to reopen or are still deciding whether to reopen face uncertainty.

DIRECT ASSISTANCE

Working with our nonprofit community partners and disaster case managers, we have granted millions of dollars to provide assistance to survivors.

PARTNERS & MAJOR DONORS

After opening its doors to first responders and community members in the immediate aftermath of the Camp Fire, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. began a long-term fundraising campaign. The brewery launched Resilience Butte County Proud IPA, a collaborative fundraising project with more than 1,400 breweries worldwide that raised millions of dollars for Camp Fire relief. As short-term relief gave way to long-term recovery, the family-run company has been a valuable, engaged partner every step of the way. 

The Aaron Rodgers NorCal Fire Recovery Fund was established in the immediate aftermath of the Camp Fire to support programs that offer youths stability in the face of crisis, support the local youth sports infrastructure and support the process of bringing permanent and transitional housing back to the burned area.
