Our partners in Philanthropy California who cover the fire-impacted areas – San Diego Grantmakers and Southern California Grantmakers – are in close contact with local funders and others working in those communities to understand emerging needs and funding opportunities.

Our heartfelt thoughts go out to our members, partners, friends, and everyone affected. We will keep this page updated with information that could be helpful in responding appropriately to these disasters.
