Calaveras Community Foundation Establishes Butte Fire Disaster Relief Fund

Angels Camp, CA...The Calaveras Community Foundation (a 501(c)(3) non-profit) has created the Disaster Relief Fund to provide disaster assistance in Calaveras County. The Foundation will be focusing on post-event recovery and is currently assessing how best to use its financial resources.


Donations may be sent to the Foundation at PO Box 1436, Angels Camp, 95222, or by using the PayPal button on its website: www.calaverascommunityfoundation.org. Please indicate “DRF” on your checks or in the PayPal comment box. For further information, call the Foundation Office at 209/736-1845.



About CCF

In 1999, two long time West Point (Calaveras County) residents Genna Hurst and Beth Childs decided to explore the creation of a community foundation for Calaveras County. Genna and Beth received positive responses from local private and public sector community members. An informal committee of local residents was created to help guide the creation of a community foundation, and the staff of the Sonora Area Foundation provided facilitation experience. On January 13, 2000, bylaws were adopted and the Calaveras Community Foundation was formed. Articles of Incorporation were filed and in April 2000 the first Board of Directors meeting was held. The organization has been in continuous operation since then.

In April 2001, the Calaveras Community Foundation was officially recognized as a public benefit, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. In 2005 the IRS confirmed the Foundation’s status as a 501(c)(3) public charity with tax ID # 68-0472056. The Foundation is guided by an all-volunteer community-spirited Board of Directors that can vary between eleven and fifteen members. The Foundation maintains an office at 1211 S. Main Street (Hwy. 49) in Angels Camp.

The Foundation’s Mission Statement

The Calaveras Community Foundation is dedicated to improving Calaveras communities by providing grants to partner organizations, assisting donors, and providing leadership in addressing charitable causes.

Now in it’s fifteenth year, the Foundation looks firmly toward the future. The organization is still small but has become the largest, general purpose charitable organization in Calaveras County. Since the Foundation’s inception in 2001, over $1,000,000 has been distributed to worthy causes, through competitive grants, scholarships and assistance. The Board is constantly looking for ways to increase its assets, and to search out the best ways to use its resources to help the residents of Calaveras County.

I would like to suggest using funds to help folks with their deductible on their insurance claims. After having to spend money for hotels, travel, necessities and food, it would be helpful to just have that money to give to the insurance company to say "Lets get this claim rolling."

    Huh? There are people who don't have homes or insurance or money. Totally flat out of assets and life's necessities.. I suggest it go to help them rent a place, get utilities, gas to look for a job, etc.....

      Funds to the foundation can be used as a slush fund of sorts to go to where they are most needed at the time

    I really feel bad for the people who have lost their homes....but give money to any Ins Co? Might as well just give it to a politician, or just flush it down a toilet.

      You do know what a deductible is, right?

    That's a nice suggestion, but deductibles aren't paid by the insurance holder until all is said and done... You do not have to pay your deductible to start a claim, and insurance companies cover any expenses incurred and include those costs in the claim for people that have been displaced from their home... It's a very nice thought to suggest where donation $ should be directed, but I don't think you understand insurance policies or claims or how they work... Just sayin. Good luck everybody!

      Umm... you're not exactly right, either.
      The deductible is the portion you are responsible for - they'll write you a check for the damage, minus your deductible. If you don't have your deductible portion set aside, you're not going to have enough to pay for the work once it's done.
      I think that's the point the original poster was trying to make in the appeal for help with deductible coverage - most people don't have 5 grand just lying around to cover the deductible for their lost and damaged property.

        Forgot to add.... You aren't correct about the instant coverage for hotels, etc., either. Insurance does not pay for those types of things up front. They reimburse you once you've supplied receipts and credit card bills for your expenses - and it takes a while to get it back.

As I understand, donations to CCF are tax deductible' if that matters. And it insures the money will go to worthwhile non- profit groups whose funding has been decimated by the Fire.
Giving to pay for someone's housing, insurance deductible doesn't guarantee it will go where it is intended. Better to give to a group that is County focused as you will be sure that your dollars will be used to help those who have the greatest need

Property taxes going forward????
Posted on: 2015-09-20 22:34:15   By: Anonymous
 
How will the loss of revenue affect Calaveras County taking all those homes and buildings off the tax rolls? Will the owners that lost their property recieve a refund for the balance of the year. If you have a prior prop 13 assessment and rebuild can you retain it?
