California Fire Response and Recovery Fund

About

On the morning of Wednesday November 7th, 2018, the most destructive wildfire in California modern history struck the Northern California region of Butte County. This fire is accompanied by fires burning in Southern California as well. Draper and Bright Funds have established the California Fire Response and Recovery Fund to support the communities impacted by these fires. This Fund is comprised of pre-vetted nonprofits providing emergency response in the region. Through a single donation to the Fund, you can support multiple organizations' initiatives to provide short-term and long-term response and recovery. We have initially selected organizations that are providing immediate relief needs, including rescue efforts and medical assistance. The composition of the nonprofits in this Fund are subject to change as we learn more about the needs on the ground.
