Based in Santa Rosa, CA, CFSC has, for the last 35 years, leveraged its local knowledge and love of place to bring together community-minded donors and diverse nonprofit grantees to catalyze change in health and human services, emergency response, education, environment, arts and culture, and animal welfare.
