Thank you—we can’t say it enough. California once again witnessed the devastating consequences of wildfires in 2022. As the state and its residents grapple with the aftermath of these wildfires, it's important to acknowledge the incredible resilience and spirit of communities that have emerged in the face of such adversity.
Your generous support of the California Wildfire Relief Fund powered a flexible, trust-based grant to The Latino Community Foundation. The organization provided much-needed resources to families affected by the wildfires and community-based organizations working to strengthen and empower the Latino community. This is particularly important given that Latino and Indigenous communities have been disproportionately affected by natural disasters and often have limited access to resources and support. You can read more about how the foundation responds to wildfires here.
Your contribution to the California Wildfire Relief Fund, no matter how big or small, has played a crucial role in advancing community-led recovery, making a real difference in the lives of those impacted by wildfires.
This fund is no longer accepting donations, and this will be the last fund report of this kind from our team.

P.S. We have also just launched a California Storm Relief Fund to support communities affected by the current winter storms raging across the state.

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
