Humboldt Sponsors grant funds are raised in a variety of ways. The popular annual Rummage Sale, held the first Saturday in October, is the primary fundraiser.
This event has become a Humboldt County tradition since 1965. Humboldt Sponsors offers a variety of other fundraising events throughout the year.
These projects have included the Spring Luncheon and Fashion Show, and our past summer fundraisers: Margaritas by Moonlight, Boots & Bandanas,
and NEW this year ~ "A Night Under the Stars" ~ to be held August 9th at Septentrio Winery in Arcata for HS members & guests.
During the last two years, Humboldt Sponsors quickly learned to pivot and develop creative new approaches to fundraising in response to event cancellations due to COVID19.
♦ For the first time, we initiated a direct-mail fundraiser, "For the Kids of Humboldt," which was very successful and well supported by our generous local community.
♦ In addition, we held our first ever virtual online holiday auction fundraisers: "Merry, Merry Christmas Cheer" in 2020, and "Welcome to the Holidays" in 2021.
♦ Our "Spring Furniture & Home Décor Online Auction Fundraiser," also very successful, was held in April last year.
♦ Project Private Enterprise, or PPE, is another annual fundraising effort. This is an individual creative endeavor by Active Members to raise money each year
for Humboldt Sponsors. Personal donations and memorial and honorarium contributions re also valuable fundraising sources.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The needs of our local kids don't stop during a pandemic!
The past two years+ have been difficult for everyone, and local nonprofits like us are no exception.
Your generous donation helps us continue to provide grants that benefit thousands of
Humboldt County youth. All funds raised stay right here in Humboldt!
All the money raised by Humboldt Sponsors during the year goes directly
into our HUGS Grant Fund to support the youth of Humboldt County!
Humboldt Sponsors is very grateful for the support of local community-minded businesses and
organizations that so generously donate their time, money, and materials to help our cause.
