How to support wildfire victims

GoFundMe has launched a centralized hub identifying all verified fundraisers created to help residents who have lost their homes and have been displaced by the fires. The centralized hub will be updated on a regular basis with new fundraisers that have been verified by our Trust & Safety team. All fundraisers are backed by the GoFundMe Guarantee, which ensures that all funds go to the right place. 

Additionally, GoFundMe.org, the company’s charitable and advocacy arm, has launched the Wildfire Cause General Fund to offer relief to Californians in need. When donors support the GoFundMe.Org fund, GoFundMe.Org selects and then distributes donations to verified fundraisers and organizations that help those affected.
