The Coast Property Owner’s Association (CPOA) is collecting donations for those who lost property in the Big Sur fire. The team that administered support to those impacted by the 2008 fires is still intact and ready to serve our community again.

Your donation is the greatest source of support to those in need right now. Thank you!

The CPOA is a 501(c)(3) and all contributions are tax deductible. 100% of your gift will go toward those who have lost homes and property in the fire. You may earmark your donation to a specific individual. Simply make your request on the subject line of your check or in the special instructions field with your online payment.

Mail your check payable to CPOA to:
PO Box 59
Big Sur, CA 93920


fireYou can also bring cash or checks made to CPOA with “fire relief” in the subject line to the Big Sur Health Center.

The community has been overwhelmed with support and cannot accept any more unsolicited donations of clothing or supplies. Specific needs will continue to be posted here.

A full report of funds generated and dispursed will be shared here in future weeks.
