Disaster Relief in Nevada County

The Nevada County Relief Fund exists to direct vital resources to our most vulnerable neighbors impacted by past, current, and future disasters.

  • All funds raised from August 5th through Labor Day will be made available to survivors of the River Fire from Nevada County.
