Santa Cruz County Disaster Fund

About This Fund

The Santa Cruz County Disaster Fund is dedicated to supporting residents impacted by floods, wildfires, earthquakes, mudslides, debris flows, and other local disasters. Contributions to this fund will be disbursed as grants to support trusted local nonprofit organizations working on the front lines of disaster response, recovery, and rebuilding efforts. Your support will help benefit those most affected and offer ready resources to organizations responding to local needs.

This fund has been activated to support local nonprofits responding to the atmospheric river storm and flooding of January 2023. 

The needs of responding nonprofits are evolving as they help people and neighborhoods assess damage, clean up, prepare for new storms, and recover from storm-related losses and hardships. Likewise, small business owners are assessing damage to their family businesses and are in touch with us about their needs.

We are now and will continue to prioritize support for organizations, such as Community Action Board, Community Bridges, and Second Harvest, that have deep roots and strong experience serving impacted communities, particularly those disproportionately affected by the disaster like seniors, the medically fragile, and Spanish and indigenous language speaking communities.
