About Our Fundraising & Events

Humboldt Sponsors grant funds are raised in a variety of ways.
Our popular annual Rummage Sale, 
a Humboldt County tradition since 1965, 
was one of our primary fundraisers. Our 2022 "Grand Finale" Rummage Sale, 
the last and final one, raised more than $40,000 this year!

Humboldt Sponsors offers a variety of other fundraising events throughout the year. 
These projects have included the Spring Luncheon and Fashion Show,
our past summer fundraisers: 
Margaritas by Moonlight, Boots & Bandanas, 
and NEW this year - "A Night Under the Stars" - held August 9th
at Septentrio Winery in Arcata for HS members & guests. 

(Fundraiser, Personal Donations and Memorial and honorarium contributions gratefully accepted.)

Your generous donations help us continue to provide grants that benefit
thousands of 
Humboldt County youth. All funds raised stay right here
in Humboldt and 
goes directly into our HUGS Grant Fund!


During the last three years, Humboldt Sponsors quickly learned to pivot and develop creative new approaches
to fundraising in response to event cancellations due to COVID19

In 2020 & 2021, we initiated a direct-mail fundraiser, "For the Kids of Humboldt," 
which was very successful and well supported by our generous local community.

 We also held our first ever virtual online holiday auction fundraisers: 
"Merry, Merry Christmas Cheer" in November 2020, and "Welcome to the Holidays" in November 2021.

Our "Spring Furniture & Home Décor Online Auction Fundraiser," was held in April 2021. 

♦ Project Private Enterprise, or PPE, is another annual fundraising effort. This is an individual creative endeavor by 
Active Members to raise money each year for Humboldt Sponsors. 

♦ Personal donations, along with memorial and honorarium contributions, are also valuable fundraising sources. 


Humboldt Sponsors is very grateful for the support of local community-minded businesses and
organizations that so generously donate their time, money, and materials to help our cause.
