Northern California COVID-19 Response Fund Fund
About This Fund
The Center at Sierra Health Foundation is raising private and philanthropic contributions to provide support to those most impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. Initial contributions from Sierra Health Foundation and The California Wellness Foundation launched the Northern California COVID-19 Response Fund. We will work with other funder partners, community organizations and private contributors to increase the fund and deploy needed support to Northern California nonprofits that work directly with vulnerable community members in the counties of Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Colusa, El Dorado, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Mono, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, Solano, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, Tuolumne, Yolo and Yuba.
The mission of the Response Fund is to ensure vulnerable families, individuals and the nonprofits serving them receive assistance for essential supplies, food, rent, utilities and other basic needs, including access to health and human services, programs and protections available under local, state and federal law.
