Dixie Fire Fund
The Dixie Fire Fund will provide emergency hardship support and community disaster relief to the Northeastern California communities who were damaged in the path of the Dixie Fire. In partnership with the Community Foundation of Northern Nevada, Plumas Bank inspired the establishment of the Dixie Fire Fund. Plumas Bank was founded in Quincy, California and provides services across the five counties impacted by the fire: Plumas, Butte, Lassen, Tehama and Shasta.
As the host and administrator of the fund, The Community Foundation organized an advisory council to oversee its distribution to Dixie Fire affected communities. Plumas Bank announced its commitment of $50,000 to the fund to spur additional contributions. As of Nov. 1, 2021, the fund reached nearly $170,000.
