In order to join the effort that so many have been putting forth to help Ukraine and those affected, the Community Foundation for San Benito County opened the Ukraine Humanitarian Fund. The fund's purpose is to direct donations to organizations providing services and relief efforts to the people of Ukraine. After much consideration, the Community Foundation has selected three nonprofits to be granted $3,000 with the donations received from this fund to date.

The Community Foundation’s Ukraine Humanitarian Fund is still open to receive donations. The conflict is not over, and the people in Ukraine still require assistance. Donate now and your gift will provide continued support to these nonprofits.

Make an online donation, or write a check payable to CFFSBC with “Ukraine Fund” in the memo and drop if off or send it to our address at 440 San Benito Street, Hollister, CA 95023.
