Community Emergency Relief Fund (CERF)

It is impossible to know when an emergency will strike in our community, so it is essential we be prepared with funds and resources to support the immediate needs of those most impacted.  The Douglas County Community Foundation is positioned to be the point resource for financial, emotional and operational reinforcements during a crisis situation. 

Thanks to the generous financial contributions of donors, we have established a Community Emergency Relief Fund (CERF) that can be quickly accessed and distributed to those in Douglas County who need it most, when they need it most.  The Foundation is agile in vetting, managing and tracking fund recipients to assure maximum efficacy.

Contribute to our Community Emergency Relief Fund (CERF) and be assured your gift will help our community, should the need arise. 100% of all designated donations will be reserved for use in a community emergency in Douglas County.
