Dear Woodside Community,

The Woodside Community Foundation Board is reaching out to learn where you believe we should direct our efforts in the coming years.  We are eager to hear what you think of our ideas.  We also welcome additional ideas you may have regarding projects that are important to you.

This survey is only 5 minutes long. 

Thank you in advance for your time.

Regards,
The WCF Board

Question Title

* Spurred by the north bay fires of 2017, the WCF established an emergency relief fund to accept donations to support the rescue and care of livestock affected by the fires. This fund is now a permanent Local Disaster Relief Fund with a focus on large animals. This fund allowed the WCF to immediately fund rescue efforts after the CZU fires broke out last summer.  

Are you supportive of the WCF's maintaining and administrating a large animal disaster relief fund?

Question Title

* What regions are you supportive of the WCF providing relief when the need arises?

The WCF is exploring additional areas of need that the greater Woodside community would be interested in supporting. This is only a partial list. Please add your suggestions and comments.
The first category of projects is wildfire mitigation efforts in Woodside.  Please give us your opinion on your likeliness to support a fund with the following goals.

Question Title

* A fund to support grants for the preventative clearing of brush on private land.

Question Title

* A fund to support the undergrounding of electrical wires to prevent equipment-triggered wildfires.

Question Title

* Do you have any other suggestions for fire mitigation projects the WCF could help support?  Any suggestions are welcome.

The next category of projects is building community around environmental education, gardening, horticulture, and the arts.

The next category is landscaping and oak tree planting.

The last category is to establish a fund with the goal of giving grants to fund programs at Woodside High School as well as local non-profits that serve the neighborhoods and towns of Belle Haven, Fair Oaks, and East Palo Alto in the areas of education, housing, childcare, and community betterment.

Question Title

Question Title
