Humboldt County Human Rights Human Trafficking Fund


(2018) Human trafficking is a particularly insidious crime that has profound negative effects on the health and well-being of its survivors and the community. The clandestine subculture of Humboldt County creates a communication gap between citizens and law enforcement, leaving many community members vulnerable. The UN definition of human trafficking is “the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons by improper means for an improper purpose including forced labor or sexual exploitation.” The Humboldt County Human Rights Commission (HCHRC) asserts that there is a great need for documenting information on local human trafficking issues to assist our policymakers, law enforcement, and community members in finding real solutions around our local human trafficking issues. Any Humboldt County nonprofit, nongovernmental organization, or municipality working on gathering information on human trafficking may apply for this fund. Please email hhr@co.humboldt.ca.us for more information. The fund welcomes donations from concerned community members at www.hafoundation.org/HCHRCHumanTrafficking.

Joseph E. Davey Memorial Fund


(2018) Joseph Davey was a nearly-native of Humboldt County, born in Colorado but residing in Eureka from an early age. He attended St. Bernard’s schools, College of the Redwoods, and graduated from HSU. Joe enjoyed watching and playing several sports. In his young adulthood, he discovered soccer and it became his passion. He played in co-ed adult leagues for many years and, when his children came of soccer-playing age, he coached. After his sons moved on to advanced levels of play, Joe continued to coach youth teams. Joe was witness to the difference that the team sport experience can make in a child’s life and strived to make every child a success. The Joseph E. Davey Memorial Fund provides funding for children whose family financial circumstances make it difficult for them to participate in organized youth soccer. Preference is given to children in foster care. Funds may be used for league fees, equipment, and travel expenses. Joseph Davey passed away from cancer in 2017.

Vellis Family Endowment Fund


(2019) This fund was created with the remainder of the Charitable Remainder Trust established by Lewis and Jane Vellis in 2000. The fund serves two distinct educational goals. While one objective assists students directly, the other benefits a community college. The first area of interest is to provide scholarships for juniors and seniors in high school served by College of the Redwoods and its branches. The intent is to expand their curricula so that they can become adults in the workforce, motivated to attain a higher level of proficiency and work toward a stated goal. This opportunity may continue through a bachelor's degree in a state college. The second purpose is to assist the Santa Barbara City College Continuing Education Division to develop and sustain courses and seminar series featuring nationally known speakers, primarily in the field of transitional psychology such as the "Mind/Supermind" series.
