Donate now and double your impact with a match from The Starbucks Foundation
Join The Starbucks Foundation in supporting the Center for Disaster Philanthropy's (CDP) response to recovery needs that will arise following the devastating Northern California Wildfires. The Starbucks Foundation will match donations submitted through this page up to $100,000.
Fires began on October 8 in Northern California, and have engulfed more than 170,000 acres across the region. As many as 22 fires have notably burned through parts of California this month. At least 31 people have died, hundreds more are missing, and hundreds of injuries have been reported—and those numbers are expected to rise. Emergency official report that at least 3,500 structures have been destroyed.
Your donation will support medium and long-term recovery needs that will continue to surface throughout the wildfire-affected areas of California in the coming weeks and months. Long-term needs will likely include: rebuilding homes, businesses, infrastructure; meeting the needs of young children; supporting mental health needs; and boosting damaged agricultural sectors.
Give now to help affected communities face and overcome the challenges that will continue to surface throughout Northern California long after our attention has turned away from this disaster.
