The Fire Relief Fund will enable local donors to make gifts to support those impacted by the wildfires throughout California. The Foundation will redistribute funding to the closest community foundations near the disaster to direct to local agencies who are on the ground in their communities providing immediate support to those most in need. The Community Foundation has waived all administrative fees so 100% of donations will be used for grantmaking.
