Holiday Funding Partnership

The Wild Rivers Community Foundation hosts an annual Holiday Partnership to assist our community with raising resources during the holidays for those in need.

Organizations in Del Norte and Curry County that help provide emergency supplies, food, winter clothing, hygiene products and gifts to children and adults in our region during the upcoming holiday season are encouraged to link with each other during this program. The funds are made possible through the generous donations from regional funders in Oregon and California who know that the holiday season is a wonderful time to give to the community.

The deadline for submitting applications is Nov. 2, 2020
