The San Luis Obispo County Community Foundation has activated its disaster support fund to help victims of the Chimney Fire near Nacimiento Lake.

“Donations to the fund will provide both immediate relief and support rebuilding and recovery efforts in the aftermath of the fire,” the foundation said in its announcement of the fund activation. “Grants from the fund will be distributed to nonprofit agencies and organizations directly assisting individuals to meet needs as they arise and to deploy resources where they are most needed.”

The foundation also announced it is waiving all administrative fees, so all donations will go into grant-making. Donations can be made by calling 805-543-2323.

Donations may also be mailed to the foundation at 550 Dana St., San Luis Obispo or by visiting the foundation’s webpage at http://www.cfsloco.org.
