Buena Vista County Disaster Recovery Fund

The Buena Vista County Disaster Recovery Fund (DRF) has been activated as we recover from the impact of recent severe weather. 

The DRF provides an opportunity for the public to give with the reassurance their donations will be used to quickly move resources to where they are most needed and to adapt to evolving needs during times of disaster. 


Mission of the Buena Vista County Community Foundation:

To provide grant funding for Not-For-Profit groups in Buena Vista County and to encourage the endowment of funds for future generations.
