HAF+WRCF grants help brighten the holidays for those in need

Humboldt Area Foundation + Wild Rivers Community Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2023 Holiday Funding Partnership grants from organizations that assist underserved residents of Humboldt, Del Norte, Trinity, and Curry counties.

The Holiday Funding Partnership offers small grants of $500 to $2,000 to regional nonprofit organizations, public benefit groups (including schools, churches, tribal governments), groups engaged in charitable projects, and qualified fiscal sponsors. The funds are to be used for holiday assistance programs offered between November 15 and January 1. Applications are due by Oct. 2, 2023.

“Each winter holiday season, organizations across our region support our communities through holiday programs,” said Elena Keltz, Grants Associate. “The goal of grants made by the Holiday Funding Partnership is to support this work, with a focus on programs that provide food, clothing, and other basic necessities to underserved communities.”

In 2022, HAF+WRCF awarded 63 grants totaling $68,395 to charitable organizations and projects.

Partners of the grant program include Humboldt Health Foundation, the Mel & Grace McLean Foundation, the Smullin Foundation and Providence, Community Health Investment. The grants ensure the holiday season is special for those facing housing and food insecurity.
