Storm Relief Fund

Storm Relief Fund

The Monterey County Storm Relief Fund of the Community Foundation for Monterey County (CFMC) will assist those affected by 2023 winter storm damage.

Monterey County Storm Relief Fund

The 2023 winter storms have caused widespread destruction and hardship for many Monterey County residents and their families due to heavy rains, toppled trees, power outages and flooding.

People are in need of food, housing, and financial assistance. Now that floodwaters have receded, residents will also need support for cleanup and recovery. The CFMC created the Monterey County Storm Relief Fund to raise funds to provide relief for affected individuals and families.

 Donate Now

Donations will provide emergency assistance and relief through local nonprofits for needs including food, emergency shelter, financial assistance to those evacuated, support for first responders, as well as recovery efforts. Your gift will support the affected residents of Monterey County, California and is fully tax deductible. 100% of donations will be used for grantmaking.

The CFMC granted $100,000 to initiate the Storm Relief Fund and the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, host of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, granted an additional $100,000 to the fund. Additional support has been received from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, Vistra, individuals and businesses, but more support is welcome to help meet local needs.


Grants will be distributed to nonprofit agencies and organizations directly assisting individuals to meet needs as they arise. We are working in close partnership with local nonprofits to deploy resources where they are most needed. More than $216,400 has been granted through January 25, 2023. Visit for more information.
