Restoration. Community. Stewardship.

The Central Sierra Resiliency Fund is a community initiative held at the Central Sierra Historical Society and Museum, Inc. In launching this effort, local community members and concerned professionals have collaborated to create a Resiliency Council to administer the restricted fund and determine funding recipients. We look forward to partnering with other local, state, and national organizations to ensure resources to empower the mountain community to get people living, working, and recreating on the mountain again. 

The Resiliency Fund will support Creek Fire recovery efforts in communities within the vicinity of Fresno County’s Central Sierra region including, but not limited to, Huntington Lake, Lakeshore, Big Creek, Shaver Lake, Pine Ridge, Meadow Lakes, Alder Springs, and Auberry.

Visit our Community Stories section and learn firsthand how this Fund came to life and how its organizers pledge to breathe life back into the Central Sierra forest and its communities.
