  • $200,000 will go to the California Fire Foundation.
  • $100,000 will go to Michael Williams, a firefighter who wasn’t able to protect his own home because he was helping many of his neighbors during the wildfire incident.

Both the California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief and California Fire Foundation were established to give temporary relief as well as long-term recovery support to the victims of the massive and destructive California wildfire. While, the California Fire Foundation provides financial aid as well as emotional assistance to the firefighters and also to the families of firefighters who lost their lives while trying to protect the community from the fire.

Michael Williams is a firefighter whose house was also destroyed by the wildfire. He wasn’t able to save his home because he continued to serve and fulfill his duties by helping other people in the neighborhood. The $100K fund is to help him, and his wife rebuild their home which they lost during the California wildfire.
