Responding to Southern California Wildfires

Dear Friends of the Foundation,

As you know, extremely dangerous wildfires are devastating many parts of Southern California, and donations from the public are needed to help offset the cost of the extraordinary response services that are required during -- and will be necessary following -- this emergency.


Our colleagues in Los Angeles at the California Community Foundation (CCF) have compiled a list of organizations collecting donations in response to the wildfires, including their fund for wildfire relief, The CCF Wildfire Relief Fund, and the Ventura County Community Foundation's Disaster Relief Fund.

See the complete list

Like you, our thoughts are with those whose lives are affected by these devastating wildfires. We are always heartened by the Sacramento region's response to crises — on local and national scales — and, as ever, we appreciate your generosity.


Foundation Fundholders: You can make a grant from your fund to this response effort using DonorCentral. Please contact Chelsea Fahr, Donor Services Officer, with any questions at or (916) 921-7723 ext. 2021.
