Support organizations assisting Military, Veterans, and First Responders Organizations Serving Kern County. In the spirit of the 4th of July, I respectfully offer an opportunity to support nonprofits that serve our military, veterans, and first responders in Kern County.  Please find appeals from carefully selected organizations partnered with Kern Community Foundation to serve these groups locally.  More information can be found on the links some of the groups provided.

Kern Community Foundation can process gifts through your fund, check, credit/debit card, and even complex gifts such as stock, property, and crops.  As always, we can help you publicly share your support for these organizations.  If you have any questions, please contact me at 661-325-5346 or
