Disaster Response & Resilience Fund


(2020) The Disaster Response & Resilience Fund supports residents of Humboldt, Trinity, Del Norte, and Curry counties, as well as adjoining Tribal lands during current and future disasters, including public health emergencies such as the COVID19 pandemic, fires, earthquakes, flooding, and other natural and man-made disasters.

Redwood Region Climate & Community Resilience Hub


(2021) The Redwood Core Hub provides community engagement, technical assistance and an equity and justice lens to help our community transition our built and natural systems to a decarbonized and resilient future. By transitioning our built systems to lowest-emission operations, and optimizing natural systems’ regenerative and carbon ‘sink’ (sequestration) potentials, rural areas can adapt and manage against impacts, improve local economies and quality of life, zero out their own carbon footprint, and help the planet cool. The CORE Hub helps convene dialogues and distribute resources to communities as they work to reorganize and relocate built and natural systems in better cooperation with human needs, and to document the processes so local communities and other rural regions and Tribal Nations have a recipe for their own decarbonized resilience. Donations to the CORE Hub fund support this work.

Humboldt Wildlife and Habitat Conservation Fund


Humboldt County is biologically diverse and still supports healthy populations of a wide variety of plants and animals, including rare, threatened, and endangered species. Many of us who live here chose it for that very fact. Yet, a long history of uncontrolled resource consumption, combined with current pressures such as a growing human population, increasing cannabis cultivation, aquaculture, renewable energy projects, and climate change, have caused and will continue to cause damage that needs to be remedied, mitigated, and prevented in order to maintain that diversity. The Humboldt Wildlife and Habitat Conservation Fund was established by local author, biologist, and educator, Ken Burton, in 2022 to support environmental and conservation efforts in the county, with an emphasis on needs related to wildlife and wildlife habitat. Projects that will have direct, measurable effects, such as invasive species control, fish passage enhancement, habitat restoration, and reintroductions, are preferred. Please consider donating to this fund to help make Humboldt County an even better home for its wildlife - and by extension its human inhabitants!

Lottie Memorial Fund


Christopher John Lottie, was born August 6, 1980, in Raleigh, NC. By the time he was 18 months old he had developed an extensive vocabulary and sense of humor.

Between the ages of 6 weeks old and 18 years, Chris and the family moved 5 times: Raleigh, NC; Colts Neck, NJ; Fairview, TX; Bellevue, WA; Eden Prairie, MN; and Plano, TX in 1994. He went to the University of Texas at Austin for two years before going to and graduating from Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Institute of Austin, TX. He was a chef in various Austin area restaurants, and planted, cultivated, and expanded fresh produce gardens. For three years Chris was part owner, managed and worked at two Dickey’s BBQ Pit restaurants in Austin. Upon their closing, he moved to Redway, CA in 2015. While in Redway, he met Mackenzie E. Dorn. On June 25, 2022, they were married. He passed away July 28, 2022. He is survived by his wife, Mackenzie Dorn Lottie, parents Rick and Vickie Lottie, and sister Christy Lottie. Chris would do anything for family or friends, and during the 2020-21 wildfires in Northern CA, he helped evacuate friends and strangers alike. Donations made to this fund will go toward supporting local fire organizations throughout all of Humboldt County.
