Greater Goods Relief Fund
the greater goods relief fund is dedicated to those in the ojai area who have significant losses & little support. we are currently focused on ojai area residents affected by the thomas fire & are prepared to respond to potential winter floods or slides. our template is fairly simple: 100% of donations go to those in serious need of support. 50% is shared as cash aid at the end of each month & 50% is put aside for long term aid.
Thanks to those individuals and organizations including Direct Relief and everyone involved in Handmade Makers Market at Poco Farm who generously gave and built momentum in the early days of recovery. To date, over 150,000 has been distributed. This week we are distributing just over $52,000 to 43 households. big thanks to the thacher school alumni association, the brittingham family foundation, the jack johnson and friends benefit concert, wallace foundation, & the handful of individual donors, musicians, artists, students, and local restaurants who’ve continued to support our fund. we’d also like to thank our advisory board for all their service! Thank you to all the folks who continue to ask for the support they need & update us on their path to recovery.
We continue fundraising and accepting applications to sustain support for victims of the Thomas Fire.
