The Wildfire Relief & Recovery Fund supports the rebuilding and revitalization of communities throughout our region impacted by wildfire. Tragically, the wildfires have become more and more dangerous, happen more frequently and are incredibly destructive in recent years. More specifically, our region has suffered immensely. The impact of these fires has been felt by everyone in our region, and it will take many years of collaborative work for us to rebuild and revitalize homes, health and wellbeing for all of our neighbors

Our goal is to work collaboratively with the nonprofit, government, philanthropic and private sectors to accelerate recovery and rebuilding to create a thriving, resilient and even stronger region.

NVCF is able to offer this grant program to our service area because of our generous donors. This fund was opened so foundations, businesses and individuals can make donations to help vulnerable members of our communities during this crisis. NVCF collects a 5 percent service fee on donations to this fund to administer the effort.
