Our History

Humboldt Area Foundation was established in 1972 by Vera Vietor with the donation of $2.4 million and her home in Bayside.

Over the years we have distributed over $70 million in grants and scholarships while growing to over $107 million in assets. Vera’s vision and generosity has inspired more than 1,000 North Coast community members to enrich the quality of education, health, the arts, the environment, animal welfare and many other causes in our region.
