Amador’s nonprofits need our help now more than ever!

As the uncertainties about the length and impact of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic are faced, the efforts of the nonprofits that provide services to our most vulnerable will face economic hardships and food shortages in the months ahead. Please consider giving to the Amador Community Foundation Disaster Relief Fund so we may provide flexible resources to these organizations as they support our friends and neighbors. Large or small, your gift is a generous act of togetherness and solidarity with your community.

The Community Disaster Relief Fund was founded in 2015 in response to the Butte Fire. The fund was established with a gift from the Crew Family Endowment Fund. First and foremost, the fund provided assistance to the families, nonprofits and organizations impacted by the Butte Fire. The fund has remained in place in order to provide future assistance should the need arise again. That time has come!

The Community Foundation has a history of helping Amador County nonprofits and organizations and will be able to deliver monetary assistance efficiently and effectively.
