Who We Are

MCCF is the oldest grassroots, nonprofit advocate for low income and at risk children in Mendocino County. We serve coastal communities from Rockport to Gualala and inland to Comptche. We have strong partnerships throughout Mendocino County and the Redwood Empire.

We began in 1992 and have been serving children for 30 years as an all volunteer effort.
When the wildfires and pandemic arrived, we took the lead on providing innovative and accountable solutions. As we enter our fourth decade, at the request of our partners, we are expanding our  services in 2022 so that we can provide ongoing family resource services  to strengthen the community.

MCCF is the leader in creating effective and accountable SOS responses to the challenge at hand whether a personal family crisis, a wildfire, or a public health epidemic. We are your first responders to unmet needs.

The Vision of the Mendocino Coast Children's Fund is to support a healthy community in which all children and families have the opportunity to reach their full potential in life. Our Mission is to provide resources for the unmet needs of infants, children and families on the Mendocino coast.

We provide children with essentials and necessities, hopes and dreams, opportunities and activities. We are a safety net, catching children from birth through age 18 who otherwise would fall through the cracks of society's inequities. We are committed to getting things done for children in the most beneficial way possible.

We respect the dignity and privacy of all children and families, by working in the background to quietly provide needed resources and experiences for children.

We are a trusted partner of the County, City of Fort Bragg, school districts, Red Cross, local, family, and regional foundations, and community members like you. We have a 2022 Gold Seal of Transparency from Guidestar.

Letter from the Board

Dear Community,
From Rockport to Gualala (and inland to Comptche), the Mendocino Coast Children’s Fund responds 365 days a year. From diapers to diplomas, we have been saying yes to the needs and dreams of local children in need for 29 years.

MCCF is your neighbors and friends, banding together as advocates to make sure all coastal children and families can thrive and be healthy.

Here at home, your donation makes an important difference, one child and one kindness at a time. Since 1992, thanks to you, our community inspired non-profit has said yes to kids.  Many of our donors remember the kindness you provided when they were children. Their private notes to us touch our hearts.

Early investments in children are the best a community can make! One hundred percent of your donation goes to help the children! The generosity of  donors through anonymous donations and bequests pay our small expenses so that every dollar you send goes to the kids.

Kindest regards from your MCCF board!
