Helping nonprofit leaders do better at doing good

Thomas Fire News & Resources

What is the Thomas Fire Nonprofit Taskforce?

  • The purpose of the Thomas Fire Nonprofit Taskforce is to focus on community recovery efforts by engaging a broad coalition of leaders and organizations serving our region.
  • The Taskforce is ad hoc with participating organizations serving as equal partners.
  • Representatives are from both disaster response agencies and non-emergency responding agencies.

The mission of the Thomas Fire Nonprofit Taskforce is to:

  • Convene across sectors focused on coordination & collaborative practices.
  • Share information about who is doing what, and serve as a clearinghouse of meeting dates and resources.
  • Coordinate fundraising efforts. Aggregate information about charitable funds established, funds collected and places to donate. 
  • Educate community about flow of resources, fostering transparency and accountability for sector and clarity for donors.
  • Serve as resource for best practices, reflection and discussion of how other communities have approached community recovery.
  • Help identify and fill gaps not addressed by other recovery groups.
  • Advocate for and inform a community needs assessment to identify intermediate and long-term community recovery needs.
