North Bay Fire Relief Fund for WBEs

Our hearts go out to those who are affected by the wildfires in many of the Northern California counties. If you are a victim of this disaster, be assured that Astra Women’s Business Alliance, Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), and the entire WBENC Network are here to support you and your businesses during these distressing times.

Recovery is a difficult process that may include grieving personal losses, rebuilding homes, replacing possessions, and disruption of business. Astra is here to assist our WBE sisters who are recovering and rebuilding their homes and businesses. As it takes a village to build a business, it also takes a village to support one another as they rebuild and recover. Astra would like to ask for support from our network of women business enterprises, corporations, and agencies.

Your support is key in these times of need.

Astra created a GoFundMe campaign collecting donations for our WBE Relief Funds to assist WBEs who need monetary support during this recovery process. We are reaching out to everyone in our network to join us and support those who are in need. All proceeds received through this campaign will be distributed to our certified-WBEs who are affected by the wildfire.

If you or your business was affected by this event, please reach out to us for more information on how to receive the WBE Relief Funds. Please contact us. We will keep the lines of communications open as we work through these challenges together.

Astra Women's Business Alliance is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and regional partner of Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). Astra provides WBENC and WOSB certifications, education, and training to women business owners in Northern California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Idaho, and Montana.
