Wildfire Relief Fund Past Work

Together, we can make an impact.

Building a strong community that takes care of everyone who lives here depends on your generous support.


In 2020, The California wildfires have burned a staggering 1,093,000 acres in the Greater Bay Area and Central Coast. More than 4,860 homes and structures were destroyed, and over 210,000 people were evacuated temporarily by wildfires throughout our region, including the recent Glass Fire, CZU, SCU and LNU complex fires along with the River, Carmel and Dolan wildfires in Monterey County. These wildfires are becoming more frequent and more devastating — 5 of the top 20 largest wildfires in California history have occurred in 2020.
