Universal Audio Employee Fire Relief Fund

The response from our customers, family, and friends in the music technology industry has been nothing short of overwhelming. Thanks to your generosity, we reached 2X our goal in under two weeks!

We have closed our GoFundMe to further donations, but there is still a desperate need for so many affected by the CZU Lighting Complex Fire.

Please consider donating to one of these Central Coast non-profits:
Community Bridges 

Santa Cruz Community Foundation Fire Response Fund 

Puente de la Costa Sur 

Santa Cruz SPCA 


Our original message:

Nearly 40 members of the Universal Audio  team, headquartered in Scotts Valley CA, have been displaced by the devastating CZU and SCU Lightning Complex Fires.

Several members of our UA family have lost their homes and all of their belongings to these fires — and the loss for them and our greater UA family is hard to put into words. 

We've established this GoFundMe to provide immediate relief to all UA employees affected by this tragic event. Any amount donated will be gratefully received and matched 100% by Universal Audio up to our goal.  Funds from this GoFundMe will be withdrawn into a bank account owned by Universal Audio and then distributed to affected employees over the coming weeks based on need.

 We remain strong, supportive, and hopeful for our friends and family — both within UA and in the larger community.  

Thank you for your support and generosity during these challenging times.
