Holiday Funding Partnership

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

The Holiday Funding Partnership offers small grants $500 - $2,000 to assist Humboldt, Del Norte, Trinity or Curry County non-profit organizations, public benefit organizations (public schools, churches, tribal governments, etc.) or qualified fiscal sponsors with holiday assistance programs offered between November 15 and January 1. The spirit of this grant is to inspire and support all of the activities that make holiday programs in our region a success. We seek to enhance what has already been accomplished prior to this grant. 

The committee will consider each application and prioritize funding based on: 

•Number of people served

•Focus on vulnerable youth, seniors, and low income families across our rural and native lands

•Programs providing food security (food boxes, food vouchers, grocery credit, community meals),clothing and/or other basic needs

•Extra priority given to programs that reach underserved or outlying areas

The following requests will not be funded: 

•Party decorations

•Venue rental for events

•Craft parties or crafting supplies


The deadline for submitting applications is October 15, 2021
