Your Donations will be used to:

All donations to this fund will support wildfire relief and recovery efforts in California, majorly food, water, shelter and emergency medical supply to evacuated families and rescued animals. Your donation will go to vetted nonprofits providing food, water, and shelter to people and animals in need. People from marginalized communities have less access to support before and after wildfires, which means they also tend to bear the brunt of the long-term impact, including instability and homelessness. Local organizations there for the long haul also tend to be overlooked and underfunded. Initially, the fund helps first responders meet survivors’ immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, medicine, and shelter. As needs emerge, we will support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations in the impacted area(s), particularly those working with low-income, historically underserved communities.

80 large fires have already destroyed nearly 1.5 million acres of US land, prompting the need for more than 21,000 firefighters and support personnel to respond to the blazes.

Let’s Support
Evacuated neighbors
& Affected Animals

Donations go directly to current efforts & programs for firefighting & animal rescue

Warmer spring and summer temperatures, reduced snowpack, and earlier spring snowmelt create longer and more intense dry seasons that increase moisture stress on vegetation and make forests more susceptible to severe wildfire. California Wildfire Relief Fund will support our evacuated neighbors whose lives and livelihoods are affected by the current wildfires in California. All donations to this fund will support relief and recovery efforts for Californians affected by the wildfires. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors’ immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, medicine, and shelter. We monitor the impact on affected communities and work with partners on the ground to allocate funds to where they’re needed most.
