2020 Lightning Fires

Fire Response Fund

Why This Matters

The August 2020 Lightning Complex wildfires wreaked havoc across the Santa Cruz Mountains, destroying more than 1,000 homes and upending life in the San Lorenzo Valley. When a disaster strikes, the majority of funds raised go to immediate relief, while the recovery and rebuilding process take many years.

About the Fund

The Fire Response Fund was created to address the relief and long-term recovery needs for those affected. The fund addresses the most critical needs of our nonprofits responding to the fires and their clients. Grants support disaster case management, temporary shelter, food, volunteer service, economic recovery work and other areas of unmet need. Learn more at cfscc.org/firegrants.
