Read the full story below or on the Thousand Oaks Acorn website.
The Amgen Foundation recently granted $200,000 to the Ventura County Community Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund, which helps support mid- and long-term relief and rebuilding efforts. The funds are earmarked for Thomas fire relief.
Since the fire started, the VCCF has secured more than $650,000 in community-based contributions to support relief and recovery efforts, and the board of directors committed an additional $200,000.
In addition to the Disaster Relief Fund, the VCCF launched the Sudden and Urgent Needs (SUN) Fund to provide a quick funding response to help avoid the loss of critical safety net services provided by nonprofits.
All donations to the VCCF SUN Fund and the Disaster Relief Fund are applied 100 percent to supporting nonprofits that provide direct services to those impacted by the fi res.
