Prepare communities for wildfire by finding grants to fund a new kind of community training
ORGANIZATION: Creative Crisis Leadership
Please visit the new page to apply.
Help us to find and apply for grants so we can turn a generous world into a resilient one.
We are seeking grants to fund the development and testing of our new immersive community disaster training. We are aiming for grants in the $5K-$100K range, focusing on corporate and community-based funders with interests in community resilience and/or wildfire preparedness, possibly targeting one or more of our pilot communities.
We want to create a world where everyone is ready to help themselves and the people around them in a community crisis. So we are developing a new approach to disaster training where people practice improvising, discover what they need, and find out what they are capable of.

But we need your help to make it happen. We need to fund the development and testing of a new live-action training experience that will help communities prepare for wildfire.
About Creative Crisis Leadership
171 Main St, #183, Los Altos, CA 94022, US
Our mission is to take the helplessness out of community crisis and create a world where extraordinary grassroots crisis response is ordinary. We work to give people the motivation, direction and confidence they need to take action in situations of chaos and uncertainty, and spread the skills and mindsets needed to improvise collective action successfully. Because individuals and communities who help themselves recover faster and come out better.
We make the world more socially resilient by helping ordinary people learn to improvise and work with strangers in a crisis. Our goals are to
- Support spontaneous leaders who are working to organize collective action with their micro-communities.
- Create learning experiences that community organizations can deliver to take local leadership and collective action from none to good-enough.
- Convert research results into effective coaching and learning experiences that will accomplish our mission and realize our vision.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
