Rebuild Wine Country
Donations will be used to rebuild homes and for recovery efforts in all impacted communities

Why donate here?

 

Rebuild Wine Country is long-term giving. Immediate needs are being met by our fantastic community non-profit partners already. This fund is about the bigger picture in the weeks, months, and years to come, protecting economic recovery for those without a roof over their head. With these funds our fiscal sponsor Habitat for Humanity is going to rebuild homes that were lost in the deadly wine country fires, for those who need it most.

  • 0% fees through YouCaring donations

  • No admin costs are pulled from the money raised

  • Fiscally sponsored by 501(c)3 = tax write-offs for you

  • This fund supports people directly affected in wine country

 

So, who are we?

Rebuild Wine Country was founded by wine industry professionals from both Napa Valley and Sonoma County. We watched our families, friends and colleagues grieve losses that are typically only seen on the news. Yet, the tragedy was at home, in our vineyards, wineries and neighborhoods. We believe the most urgent need is to rebuild homes for the people living in wine country. From the vineyard and winery, to the supermarket and hospital, there is a desperate need for funding to repair and rebuild homes of the people making wine country go ‘round. Every dollar given will be put, specifically, to rebuilding the the homes of those people.

We are committed to supporting our community rebuild, long after the fires are gone. Read about our leadership team.
