AN EMERGENCY RESPONSE

Bonny Doon

family fire relief

to help families restore and rebuild after the devastating CZU Lightning Fire.

This is a place to connect the people of Bonny Doon to  resources, services, and funding to help restore, and rebuild our lives and the Bonny Doon community.

DONATE
goal

Create a safe place for tax deductible donations with proper fiduciary oversight and a process for longer term distribution focusing on the gaps within the State and Federal relief efforts.

More details to follow.

funding

We have partnered with the Santa Cruz Community Fund to leverage their existing 501(c)(3) status and proven track record to ensure that 100% of donors' gifts will be used for the relief effort in the Bonny Doon Community. Additionally, we are coordinating with local community leaders and the Bonny Doon Elementary School Board to develop a method for strategic allocation of funds with a focus on those that need it most. All donations are tax-deductible.

services

We will be helping to connect people/businesses that wish to share their skills and services with those in need. Mind & body health, family support, tractors & heavy equipment, hauling and more.

Offer your services.

supplies

We are in contact with the team who are getting ground supplies to our neighbors and local firefighters and other crew and have realized the immediacy of using Venmo has served that effort best. Let us know if you'd like us to help connect you with the team - our focus will be on the long term recovery effort.

Raising funds and making connections

We endeavour to raise funds and make connections that help the residents of Bonny Doon stabilize their families & lives and rebuild their community after the devastating CZU Lightning Fire. We may also extend those services to those who have risked their lives fighting the fire to protect our forests and homes.

The committee acknowledges there are many groups that operationalize disaster relief and will sit alongside existing state, federal and community aid; so, our focus will be on addressing the need that fall outside of that purview. 

Please have patience with this grass-roots effort as we are nearly all residents of Bonny Doon and victims of the fire as well. Our current vision is outlined below:

Phase 1:
collect funds, catalogue and align resources, cultivate strategic partnerships for accountability and 501c3 oversight, establish strategies for responsible and strategic funds distribution 

Phase 2:
funds distribution & community support in the effort to rebuild our beloved community
