Summary

Wildfires have spread rapidly through both northern and southern California, destroying homes and prompting evacuations. This fund will provide relief to people impacted by the fires in the form of emergency supplies like food, water, and medicine, in addition to longer-term recovery assistance to help residents recover and rebuild. All donations to this fund will exclusively support wildfire relief and recovery efforts in California.

Challenge

The Woolsey Fire has caused widespread damage in the southern part of California, while the Camp Fire has rapidly spread in the northern part of the state. More than 70 people have been killed, more than 10,000 homes have been destroyed, and tens of thousands of people have been evacuated. Several of GlobalGiving's local nonprofit partners are responding to survivors' immediate needs and have asked us to help fund local relief and recovery efforts.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for Californians affected by wildfires. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations responding to these fires.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these fires. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.
