Supporting those affected by the California wildfires.

Thousands of California Community College students, faculty, and staff have been affected by the devastating fires throughout California. In an effort to help support those affected to get back on their feet, the Foundation has collected information on the best ways to support local community philanthropic relief efforts. This list will be updated as the situation develops and recovery efforts continue.

"The devastating reach of the Northern California fires has touched us all. We either have friends or family who have been tragically impacted. This is why it is vital for our community college family to come together to help the students, faculty, and staff affected rebuild."

Keith Aytch, Interim President, Evergreen Valley College

Give to All

Help affected community college students and staff recover from California wildfires. Funds raised will help community college students replace critical supplies like laptops, cell phones, books, backpacks and other essential materials in order to continue their education. Staff and faculty who have lost their homes will also be eligible for relief funds. Funds will be distributed through local community college foundations. 100% of your donation will directly support students and staff recovery efforts.
