RiseUp Community Impact Grants

Together we can.

The RiseUp Community Impact Grants program was created to further our mission in support of the long-term rebuilding of our region as a more sustainable and resilient community. With our primary focus being fire survivors and/or organizations serving the fire affected communities of Napa, Sonoma, Lake, and Mendocino Counties, the program makes grants to fill identified gaps in rebuilding, wildfire prevention and preparedness, and long-term resilience.

In August 2019, Rebuild NorthBay Foundation and United Way of the Wine Country were pleased to announce a new partnership in the RiseUp Community Impact Grants program. With this partnership, the program will fund up to $400,000 in grants to local organizations in support of the long-term rebuild of our region as a more sustainable and resilient community.

“What do you need and how can we help?”

Type of Grants

    • Neighborhood Impact
    • Project Support & Coordination
    • Mini-Grants ($5,000 and under)
    • Sponsorship (Event Support)
    • Capital Gifts: Improving infrastructure in fire affected areas
    • Disaster Preparedness
    • Research


Community impact grants allow for unmet needs and gaps to be filled in areas often overlooked. In post-disaster areas, there is a need to provide funds for community groups to function and provide support. Even a small grant can make a meaningful impact, unburdening fire survivors and volunteers with out-of-pocket administrative expenses (copying, meeting spaces fees, etc.).


Grants will be limited to no more than two years consecutive per award.


Grantees must provide a report within a set period of time post-funding. This report will also be submitted online.
