Since early March, wildfires across New Mexico have displaced thousands of people and destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses. From McBride to Sante Fe, the most devastating fires in New Mexico's history continue to grow as a result of prolonged drought conditions. People from low-income, rural, and marginalized communities have less access to support, and suffer the most of the long-term impact of the fires. Local nonprofits also get overlooked and underfunded.
All donations to this fund will support relief and recovery efforts in fire-impacted communities across New Mexico. Initially, funds will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund will later transition to support long-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in the communities affected.

- Provide food and emergency medical supplies to people and animals
- Support temporary shelter and emergency supplies to displaced families
- Provide support to front-line workers, such as meals and gas
- Meet other needs as they emerge
