Massive 'Rim' Wildfire in California

In just 8 days, the California Rim Fire burned more than 224 square miles including parts of the Stanislaus National Forest and Yosemite National Park. Thousands of firefighters have been deployed to put out the fire and as of today, they say it is about 30% contained. 

At this point, we know of two charities that are responding.

  • The 4-star Yosemite Conservancy is seeking funds to restore trails, facilities and wildlife habitat destroyed by fire.
  • The 3-star American Red Cross has shelters open and is providing assistance to people who have been forced out of their homes by the fire.

As a 501 (c) (3) organization itself, Charity Navigator depends on public support to help donors make informed choices. Please consider investing in the future of Charity Navigator by making a donation today.  Donate now >>
