North Valley Community Foundation

The North Valley Community Foundation (NVCF) is based in Chico, CA, which was a hub of support for displaced people who were affected by the Camp Fire in Northern California in 2018. NVCF used its deep, on-the-ground knowledge to direct money, including a grant from the Bain Capital Relief Fund, to local nonprofits that were offering short-term direct services to evacuees as well as longer term reconstruction support. NVCF directed donations to schools to support displaced students, legal aid organizations, the Humane Society, and others, based on specific requests for support.
