The mission of the Sonoma County Grape Growers Foundation is for Sonoma County grape growers to be agriculture leaders in social sustainability through partnerships and programs that support the skilled agricultural workforce and their families who sustain farming in Sonoma County.
The Sonoma County Grape Growers Foundation will convene and collaborate with various community-based organizations and government agencies to identify resources, leverage support and design programs that improve the lives and support of local agricultural employees and their families.
DONATE TO AGRICULTURAL WORKERS IMPACTED BY WILDFIRE
Since the wildfires began in Sonoma County on October 8th, more than 100,000 residents county-wide have been displaced from their homes—many of whom have permanently lost those homes. More than 3,500 structures were damaged, 85% of which were residential homes. And 22 Sonoma County residents lost their lives.
Help support agricultural workers who have been impacted by the wine country wildfires. All funds will go directly to supporting agricultural employees in Sonoma County.
