Here to Support the Immediate Requirements

As a California-based disaster relief and medical assistance organization, California Wildfire Relief has responded to wildfires in California and throughout the U.S. for several years.

The organization is a longtime partner of the State of California through its Office of Emergency Services (CalOES) and always coordinates its response to wildfires with state officials. We are also partners with the State of California Emergency Management Agency (CalEMA) and serves as one of its key Business Operations Center (BOC) partners to optimize coordination during times of emergencies.

Hundreds of wildfires are burning across Western USA majorly California & Oregon, destroying homes, forcing mass evacuations, and polluting the air. The allocation of donations received by CWRF will be used to allocate funding to support urgent needs  of firefighting and wildlife organizations by partnering with local firefighting and wildlife response organizations, communities, scientists, doctors and ground volunteers – to all counties where needed. Please contact us with any questions. We will soon be announcing some new initiatives that have been made possible through these generous contributions.

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 low-income 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 2021 wildfires. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors’ immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, medicine, and shelter.
