Camp Fire Relief Efforts

Published on Dec 13, 2018

The Golden Valley Bank Community Foundation and our 40 local business fundraising partners implemented relief efforts immediately after the impacts of the Camp Fire were known. We opened funds to collect donations from all over the country to help in short and long-term relief efforts. To date contributions have totaled over $2.5 million with more coming daily.

How We Are Helping

So far we have disbursed over $500,000 in relief efforts. This has included:

  • Boys and Girls Club of the North Valley

  • 3CORE

  • Butte Humane Society

  • The Torres Shelter

  • Direct Assistance Programs

  • Paradise Elementary School

  • Achieve Charter School

  • Butte County Office of Education

  • Gas Card purchases

  • Sub-Fund direct disbursements

  • Caring Choices- lunch for volunteers

Long-Term Plan

The need in our community is great and we will have more needs long-term. Many organizations are stepping in and we need to be ready to help for years to come. Our community is facing a challenge together and we are planning to allocate our funds to those needs. These include:

  • Small Businesses

  • Housing

  • Shelters

  • Education

  • Local Nonprofits

  • Children
