This fund exists to raise money to support nonprofits and agencies providing immediate assistance to evacuees, animals and others impacted by fires in our area. 

The Wildfire Relief & Recovery Fund supports the rebuilding and revitalization of communities throughout our region impacted by wildfire. Tragically, the wildfires have become more and more dangerous, happen more frequently and are incredibly destructive in recent years. More specifically our region has suffered immensely. The impact of these fires has been felt by everyone in our region, and it will take many years of collaborative work for us to rebuild and revitalize homes, health, and wellbeing for all of our neighbors. 

Our goal is to work collaboratively with the nonprofit, government, philanthropic and private sectors to accelerate recovery and rebuilding to create a thriving, resilient and even stronger region. 




Please read the grant guidelines and criteria before applying – and please note that we will continue to update the program areas and selection criteria as new gaps, issues and opportunities emerge through the long-term recovery and rebuilding process. 

North Complex Fire

Small Grant Program

Eligible organizations that are seeking $5,000 or less in funding for qualified programs may apply to the North Complex Fire - Small Grant Program. This streamlined process does not require additional documentation at the time of application, but additional documentation may be requested by a program officer.

North Complex Fire

Large Grant Program

Eligible organizations that are seeking more than $5,000 for a qualified program must apply to the North Complex Fire - Large Grant Program.
