Supporting artists & cultural organizations whose work and personal lives have been impacted by local natural disasters.


On the evening of October 8, 2017, several fires broke out in Napa County – leading to an major natural disaster in both Napa and Sonoma counties that has claimed dozens of lives, thousands of homes and buildings, displaced tens of thousands of residents, and burned over one-hundred thousand acres.

We at Arts Council Napa Valley, along with our partner agency Creative Sonoma, are here to support those in our arts and culture community whose professional work as well as personal lives have been damaged by these fires. We are here to help provide information, resources, and relief to any musicians, visual artists, performers, or other creative professionals as well as organizations who are in need.

Donate online here. Contributions to the fund as well as gift cards are welcome in any amount. In-kind contributions such as new and gently used art supplies, music equipment and other materials may be accepted through special arrangement. Please contact Olivia at olivia@artscouncilnv.org. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. 

If you are or know a member of the creative community who is in need, please send their name and email address to Bethany Crown at bethany@artscouncilnv.org so we can be in contact when the funds and resources are available.
