OAK FIRE DONATIONS STILL BEING ACCEPTED
Thank you for helping us help our community. Donations go to those impacted by the Oak Fire who have suffered damage or destruction of homes and structures. We have been utilizing the donated funds to assist those survivors with the highest need – low income survivors who have lost their homes and are uninsured - as identified and vetted by partner agencies through the Oak Fire Unmet Needs Council. As our county government provides trailers for temporary living quarters, the Foundation has been funding repairs to restore home infrastructure, such as power service poles, access to potable water, etc. However, these repairs are expensive and we are continuing to seek additional grants and donations with the goal of providing assistance to as many families as possible.
SMALL BUT MIGHTY

The pandemic-related closures were especially hard for our community which relies extensively on tourism for its local economy. Our Foundation was proud to provide grants to the Mariposa S.P.C.A., the Sierra Foothill Conservancy, and the Mariposa Soroptimists Club to help span the gaps from lost funding.
MARIPOSA YOUTH IMPACT
It goes without saying that children are our future. There is no better way to build community in the future than by supporting the growth and development of our youth.
Our Foundation has been honored to provide funding and support for a variety of youth programs from experiences attending symphonies and operas, to writing contests and pen pal programs, and the premiere Dinner with a Scientist program.
Building community means helping neighbors. From wildfires to global pandemics, disasters are devastating to individuals and other nonprofit organizations, alike. During those times, the Foundation proudly steps in to assist where it can - from distributing donated funds for fire victims or granting funds to help other nonprofits continue.
"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about."
