About us

The University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) offices are local problem-solving centers, part of a statewide network of UC researchers and educators who bridge UC research with the communities we serve. We are dedicated to the creation, development and application of knowledge in agricultural, natural and human resources.

Camp Fire Relief Efforts


Community development is at the heart of everything we do throughout the UC Cooperative Extension network. Many of you are probably looking for ways to support residents and animals impacted by the recent Camp Fire. At this time, monetary giving and gift cards are the most efficient way to help our neighbors.

Our colleagues from Butte County have informed us that the best way for monetary giving is through the Camp Fire Agricultural Relief Fund. You can donate online through the Golden Valley Bank Community Foundation or checks can be made payable to “GVBCF-Camp Fire” and mailed to or dropped off at the Bank: 190 Cohasset Rd. Ste. 170 Chico, CA 95926. Please be sure to include “Camp Fire Agricultural Relief Fund” on the memo line. All donations are tax deductible.
