Healdsburg Forever Locks In Literacy Resources for Local Residents

Healdsburg Forever

Healdsburg Forever provides grants to Sonoma County nonprofit organizations serving the Healdsburg and Geyserville communities. Their vision is to ensure that the Healdsburg-Geyserville area is a sustainable, inclusive community in which all individuals have the opportunity to thrive. Since launching as a regional affiliate of Community Foundation Sonoma County in 2003, the Healdsburg Forever endowment has grown to over $1.5 million and has granted more than $1.1 million to 57 worthy programs supporting critical needs in education, health and human services, the arts, and the environment.

The Free Bookmobile is grateful to be one of those programs, benefiting from this support since 2011. It has driven our ability to reach deep into this multi-faceted community, learning where the needs really are, and rolling the bookmobile to meet them. Healdsburg Forever has generously extended funding for 2020 to make sure we continue our success in their region. Thanks to their donors, we will be able to reach out to toddler programs, preschools, elementary schools, aftercare facilities, high schools, low-income health clinics, senior housing, farmworker apartments, and more, including consistent public-access for all Geyserville residents, who lack any form of library or bookstore.

Thank you Healdsburg Forever, for both the vision AND the execution!
