Join this online on June 9 to hear from two community foundation leaders
The last 5 years of wildfire has taken a brutal toll on the land and people in Northern California. So many have lost so much. But in the face of these wildfire tragedies we have also witnessed incredible acts of generosity and compassion. Thousands have donated millions of dollars, and Community Foundations have stepped in with fund development to help gather and grow and distribute the funds to meet recovery needs-from the most essential emergency provisions of safety, food and shelter, to helping the community draft a vision and take strides to reach longer term goals and community benefits.

Sharing perspectives and strategies grounded in experience
Join us in this one hour Community to Community session as we hear from two inspired leaders who will share what they know about fund development and wildfire recovery. They have innovated and served their regions over through multiple fire seasons across our Northern California region and have so much experience with philanthropy and fundraising:

Megan Barber Allende, President and CEO, Community Foundation of Mendocino County

Alexa Benson-Valavanis, President and CEO, North Valley Community Foundation

Bring your own questions to the session and learn from their experience and example!
