Covid 19 North County Business Relief

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Fulcrum Community Resources, a non-profit organization from North County, and the Manzanita Visitors Center have joined forces on a campaign for the benefit of our local small businesses and self-employed residents who are in dire need at this time.  We are asking for your help.  Can you make a donation, small or large to help them weather this unprecedented storm?

Without the economic shot in the arm from the Spring Break that didn’t happen and the possibility of a nonexistent Summer Season, we are very concerned about the viability of our businesses.  Many of us rely on them directly or indirectly for our income. We locals are loyal customers but there just aren’t enough of us.

We understand that your personal economics are also probably impacted by this pandemic and we hope you will still consider giving what you can.  Every drop helps.  United, we can make our own positive impact.

If you would like to donate there are several ways to do so.

    • By check: Please make check out to Fulcrum Community Resources with North County Business Relief in the memo line.  You can send it to Fulcrum Community Resources, PO Box 136, Nehalem, OR    Or you can go into the Manzanita branch of Columbia Bank and let them know you want to make a deposit to the Fulcrum Community Resources account.
    • Online:

Fulcrum Community Resources is a 5013c nonprofit so your donations are tax deductible.  Its mission is to Foster the transition of the Nehalem Bay community to a sustainable future.


A committee consisting of Fulcrum Community Resources board members and other locals will distribute the funds as equally as possible among the businesses who apply for relief.
