Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

What Is a Community Foundation?
A tax-exempt public charity created by and for the people in a local area (e.g., Berrien County).
It enables anyone with philanthropic interests to easily and effectively support the issues they care about--immediately and/or through planned gifts (e.g., estate plans).
