Community Foundation for Monterey County

Big Sur Relief Foundation


The devastating Soberanes Fire and this winter’s heavy rains have caused tremendous hardship for Big Sur residents, employees and their families. HWY 1 is closed with massive mud slides, and Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge – the lifeline that connects the North and South – has been declared unsafe and has been condemned.

Iconic businesses like Esalen, Nepenthe, Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn, Ventana, and Post Ranch are all temporarily closed. Over 1,000 Big Sur employees are out of work, and hundreds of families have been displaced. Thousands of people are in need of food, housing, and immediate assistance.

In light of these unique and challenging circumstances, several businesses have come together to raise funds to provide relief for local individuals and families. The Big Sur Relief Fund at the Community Foundation for Monterey County (CFMC) will provide relief and emergency assistance to those affected.
