Our friends in the Rotary Club of Ventura have started a fundraiser to help those impacted by the Thomas Fire. We have many Rotarians and friends that have been affected and some still in harms way.

Dear Rotarians,
This is Ellyn Dembowski, president of the Rotary Club of Ventura. Many of our fellow Rotarians from throughout Southern California (and from throughout the nation) have reached out to ask how they can support our efforts as we respond to the devastating fire that impacted our community. I am so proud of the group of Rotarians in our Ventura Club who have their finger on the pulse of this situation. We are raising funds to help support the local agencies that will be helping families and individuals rebuild from nothing. We will also use the funds to address specific, immediate needs… needs that fall through the cracks and are not necessarily addressed by insurance claims or other relief efforts. We urge you to support our Thomas Fire Fund and help us put service above self in Ventura County.

Please share the link to our Go Fund Me page with your club members and community network. Help us as we respond with care and compassion to this horrible event.


Ellyn Dembowski
President, Ventura Rotary Club
