Wild Rivers Community Foundation is a collection of funds, held at the Humboldt Area Foundation (HAF) that together create a permanent endowment for the benefit of the residents of Del Norte and Curry Counties.
Over the years, the Humboldt Area Foundation has made a variety of grants in Del Norte County. Humboldt Area Foundation grantmaking has always concentrated on the communities from which the donations originated, unless the donor gives other instructions. While HAF has always served our region, it has committed to fostering the development of the Wild Rivers Community Foundation which serves as a vehicle for local philanthropy in Del Norte and Curry Counties that is guided by a board of respected community leaders.
Community giving and grantmaking in Del Norte and Curry Counties will continue through donor advised funds at HAF that were established specifically to benefit residents of Del Norte and Curry Counties. However, with community support, and through the work of our local board, we expect new funds to be established with Wild Rivers Community Foundation and grantmaking to expand as the community embraces the concept of continuing to give back to itself for local priorities and the public good.
The Humboldt Area Foundation has assets over $50 million. As a community foundation, it is recognized as a public charity under IRC section 501(c)3 and a nonprofit public benefit corporation under California law. Donations to the Wild Rivers Community Foundation are completely tax deductible through our partnership with HAF. The Humboldt Area Foundation charges the overhead rate of 1.5 percent to funds of Wild Rivers Community Foundation for all service costs, the same low overhead rate charged to funds managed in Humboldt County. Wild Rivers Community Foundation extends the Humboldt Area Foundation’s services to Del Norte and Curry Counties and is a vehicle that enables private citizens, their families and friends to realize their plans and dreams for their communities.
