How can one fund rebuild 14,000 units of housing that was lost in the fire?
It can’t. There’s not enough relief money to rebuild Paradise, Concow and Magalia, but we hope to help with projects that will kick-start the process and make a meaningful difference in the lives of their community members.
Who is organizing the effort?
The North Valley Community Foundation, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and the Aaron Rodgers NorCal Fire Recovery Fund are the founders of the fund, but there are dozens of financial sponsors and many more recovery project partners.
How many people are involved in the decision-making on the projects?
Where will he money be deployed?
The Camp Fire affects all communities in Butte County and even beyond. While the aim of the fund is to help damaged areas recover, grants may be distributed in surrounding communities if the efforts directly help people or businesses affected by the fire.
Is the Butte Strong Fund still accepting donations?
Yes. Tax-deductible donations can be sent to Butte Strong Fund, 1811 Concord Ave., Ste. 220, Chico, CA 95928 or by visiting www.nvcf.org and clicking Donate. The North Valley Community Foundation uses just 1 percent of donations to put a small dent in the cost of processing, documenting, vetting grant applications and, most important, distributing funds to the people who need it.
