Humboldt Area Foundation (HAF) serves the residents of the California counties of Humboldt, Trinity, Del Norte, as well as Curry, Oregon and adjacent Tribal Lands by promoting and encouraging generosity, leadership, and inclusion to strengthen our communities. Through the generosity of local and national philanthropic donors, HAF has awarded more than $95 million in grants and scholarships since 1972. HAF—along its family of organizations including the Wild Rivers Community Foundation, Humboldt Health Foundation, Native Cultures Fund, and others— focuses its grantmaking and program efforts on strengthening community capacity and transforming our communities’ ability to solve problems and address the root causes of those problems. In early 2021, the foundation adopted four goals focused on vital issues for its next decade of action and support: Racial Equity, a Just Economy, Thriving Families and Youth, and Healthy Ecosystems and Environments. As part of this new focus, the organization is making significant organizational shifts to support this dynamic and growing region in the Pacific Western United States.
