CPOA’s Big Sur Fire Relief Fund 2013 website is up: big sur fire relief fund personally, I watched Patte handing out immediate checks last night to those who lost homes. Here she is doing so at last night’s meeting.
With CPOA, every dime goes to those who lost their homes – there is no admin fees or other costs. If you want to donate to a specific person or family, they will earmark it and make sure it is received. If you donate through go fund, or many others, they will keep up to 10% of your donation.

Ken Wright also asked me to post the following: “The Board of Directors of the Community Foundation of Monterey County has okayed a fire relief fund called, Big Sur Fire Fund. Details, including how to contribute, will follow. No fees will be charged by the Foundation for creating or handling this fund.”
