HAF/WRCF was founded in 1972 and has current assets of $155 million and an annual budget of $15.8 million.

In 2020, HAF+WRCF adopted a generational vision of a Thriving, Just, Healthy, and Equitable Region. This vision is implemented through four decade-long goals of increasing Racial Equity, Thriving Youth and Families, Healthy Ecosystems and Environments, and a Just Economy. Supporting vulnerable communities is at the heart and action of HAF+WRCF, and for over two decades HAF+WRCF has intentionally focused resources toward historically underserved populations, unheard voices, and those who experience the highest rates of disparities.

HAF+WRCF implements a holistic toolkit of services to ensure we are supporting community needs. This includes capacity building, advocacy and policy work, networking, leadership training, impact investing, community co-design, and leveraging funds, as well as providing grants and scholarships and managing programs and initiatives. Key programs and initiatives include the Native Cultures Fund, Equity Alliance of the North Coast, and the Redwood Region Climate and Community Resilience Hub (CORE Hub). It also deploys emergency response, recovery, and resilience funding and regranting through its innovative Community Response Team. In addition, HAF+WRCF provides high quality charitable giving services to individuals, families and businesses and develops deep relationships with financial and professional advisors and provides them with resources to help their clients with planned giving.
