I Recovery Funds for Big Basin and Santa Cruz Redwood Forests, August Lightning Complex Fire:
Our communities throughout San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz counties are in crisis. Fire is spreading, homes have been lost, our neighbors are displaced, wildlife are on the run, and forests are burning. Our air is choked with smoke and ash. And many of the region’s parks, including the iconic Big Basin Redwoods State Park, have been significantly impacted by these wildfires.
go to re-wild our forests by planting trees to establish vibrant and healthy eco-systems that benefit us all, and there are multiple ways to donate to this trusted non-profit, established in 1900 to protect and permanently preserve redwood forests, wildlife habitat, watersheds, and other important natural and scenic features of California’s Santa Cruz.
The University of California at Davis Veterinary Catastrophic Need Fund provides veterinary medical treatments at the William R. Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital for animals that are injured in wildfires, natural disasters or other accidents.

Our urgent need is replacing technology for displaced students to reduce isolation and increase distance learning access. Homes are lost, uninhabitable, or under mandatory evacuation. But even as we're scattered, we reach out to each other like never before. We named our organization the Community School Foundation for a reason. For the children of Bonny Doon displaced by wildfire and stifled by pandemic, school connection, structure, and routine take on special meaning. And education will always be our mission. This is urgent work.We have multiple teachers who have lost homes and require considerable replacement technology to resume distance teaching.
Our immediate need is to replace hardware and connectivity to bring our school back online. We are assessing additional needs that will arise from this disaster as well. Thank you. (All donations are tax deductible, our tax ID is 77-0412170.)
