Emergency Volunteer & Donations Management

In Sonoma, Marin, Solano and Napa Counties, Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL) operates Emergency Volunteer Centers at the request of local county Offices of Emergency Services. We work with nonprofit and government agencies to gather and assess community needs on an ongoing basis when a disaster strikes. We also help coordinate physical and monetary donations, and distribute them to nonprofit agencies that help people and animals that were directly affected.

Below are ways you can get involved and volunteer/donate by county. You can also show your support by making a donation to our COVID-19 Relief Fund.
