About Our Fundraising & Events
Humboldt Sponsors is very grateful for the support from our local community members, businesses and
organizations that so generously give of their time, money, and donations to help our cause.

Your generous donations help us continue
to provide grants that benefit thousands of
Humboldt County youth every year.
All funds raised stay right here in Humboldt and
go directly into our Grant Fund! 

Humboldt Sponsors grant funds are raised throughout
the year in a variety of ways. P
rojects and events
have included 
the Spring Luncheon and Fashion Show, 

our past summer fundraisers: 
Margaritas by Moonlight, Boots & Bandanas, and 
new in 2022 - "A Night Under the Stars" - 
held in August at Septentrio Winery in Arcata 
for our members & guests.
Our popular Annual "Kids are Winners" Chicken Dinner 
Drive-Thru Fundraiser, held in the spring,
has also been a big success. 



During the last three years, Humboldt Sponsors quickly learned to pivot and develop creative new approaches
to fundraising in response to event cancellations due to COVID19

In 2020 & 2021, we initiated a direct-mail fundraiser, "For the Kids of Humboldt," 
which was very successful and well supported by our generous local community.

 We also held our first ever virtual online holiday auction fundraisers: "Merry, Merry Christmas Cheer"
in November 2020, and "Welcome to the Holidays" in November 2021.

Our "Spring Furniture & Home Décor Online Auction Fundraiser," was held in April 2021. 

Personal fundraisers, formerly known as Project Private Enterprise, or PPE, contribute to our grant funds every year.
All members, Actives and Associates, are welcome to create individual fundraisers to raise money for Humboldt Sponsors. 

♦ Personal donations, along with memorial and honorarium contributions, are also valuable fundraising sources. 




 Thank you, Humboldt County, for making our
"Grand Finale" Rummage Sale such a HUGE success!
Sadly, after more than 55 years, Humboldt Sponsors decided that this year would be our last rummage sale.
We have made this difficult decision after long and careful consideration of several factors: mainly, 
the loss of our storage facility lease, the ever-increasing costs, and the time and effort involved in preparing for and holding the sale.
We truly appreciate our local community's enthusiastic support of this popular annual fundraiser over so many years.
You have helped us provide funding for much needed programs, services and activities for thousands of Humboldt County kids!
