The Community Foundation for Monterey County has created the Monterey County Fire Relief Fund to aid those affected by the River, Carmel, and Dolan Fires.

Grants will go to nonprofits and organizations assisting individuals and families with emergency assistance, health and human services, short term housing/rental assistance, reimbursement of equipment and supplies and other support for affected residents. The fund is a trusted repository for philanthropic assets to be directed specifically for this purpose.

100% of donations will be used for grantmaking. www.cfmco.org/FireRelief
