Community Recovery Fund Fund
About This Fund
Sonora Area Foundation (SAF) has established the Community Recovery Fund, designed to be a repository for donations to support Tuolumne County as we are experiencing the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and to aid recovery. Grants will be made from the fund to local nonprofit organizations, government entities and those providing charitable services to Tuolumne County residents impacted by the pandemic and/or shelter-in-place mandate.
One-hundred percent of the monies donated to the Community Recovery Fund will be granted to local organizations: SAF does not take any fees for administering the fund. In addition, SAF’s Board of Directors has announces a matching grant of $300 per donation as an incentive for community members to donate the entire $300 eligible for an above-the-line tax deduction in the recently approved government stimulus plan.
About The Host Organization
We are especially proud of our grant making programs, which began in 1990. For the past several years, we have been particularly active in the funding of grants for food, shelter and housing programs so critical to the area. We make grants across a wide spectrum of subject areas, including human services, education, arts, health, public benefit, environment and animals. We also hold over seventy scholarship funds for graduating seniors at local high schools and students at our local community college.
