Creative Sonoma Recovery Fund

The CREATIVE SONOMA RECOVERY FUND is dedicated to collecting and disseminating relief funds to serve the immediate needs of our community. If you have the ability to donate, and would like to direct your donation to members of the creative community affected by the fires, your donation of any amount is welcome.

This is a local fund to accept donations specifically for individual members of the creative community – the musicians, artists, designers and more who contribute to the beauty and vitality of the community we love.

If you are hosting a beneficiary event for fire relief, and would like the proceeds to be targeted to the creative community, you can do that through this fund.

All contributions are 100% tax deductible and 100% of the funds received will be used for relief. 

Funds are available to individuals who are residents of Sonoma County for immediate and short-term basic human and art related needs including shelter, medications, art supplies, instruments, and more. If you are a member of the creative and arts community in Napa County, please go to

Amount and number of grants will be commensurate with the level of donations the fund receives. 

If you are or know a member of the creative community who is in need, please send their name and email address to so we can contact them when the funds are ready for disbursement.
