fundraising for disaster recovery
The Humboldt Grace Fire Recovery Project helps rural communities in the Emerald Triangle rebuild after fires.
WHY WE DO IT
In the Emerald Triangle, we have large “back to the land” homesteading communities. These communities are primarily located in rugged locations that depend on volunteer and community support to survive, leaving them at risk and depleted after a crisis occurs.

HOW WE DO IT
We Host an Auction Fundraiser
We team up with our partners at The Ink People Center For The Arts and Synapsis Eureka to put together an incredible online auction featuring art & Emerald Triangle collectibles, as well as gift cards for local services.
We Purchase Vouchers from Local Companies
We negotiate with local building, agriculture supply, water supply and emergency supply companies to purchase relief vouchers. In return, the suppliers receive sponsorship & announcements during our auction.
We Award Vouchers
We review applications for relief & award the vouchers. The recipients include landowners, homesteaders, local business owners, small farmers, and local organizations providing relief in the Emerald Triangle. The vouchers will be available in January 2022.
How The Fiscal Sponsorship Works
70% of all proceeds will go directly to purchase the vouchers. 15% to our fiscal sponsor, The Ink Peoples Center For The Arts. 5% to Synapsis Eureka for sponsoring us through the Dream Maker Program. 10% to The Humboldt Grace Foundation to cover production costs..
HOW YOU CAN RECEIVE HELP
Apply to receive relief
Vouchers are awarded to support individual landowners, homesteaders, local business owners, small farmers, and local organizations within the Emerald Triangle who are either in need of or focused on projects that provide recovery support services.
