Many thousands of people have lost their homes in the horrific Camp Fire--the most destructive and deadly in California history.  We are trying to help the students of the Geology and Environmental Sciences department directly through this fund.  All money raised will be available to those students to rebuild their lives.  No amount is too small.  $10 buys school supplies, $25 gets a backpack, $100 goes towards lost textbooks.  These funds are needed IMMEDIATELY for these students to get back on track.  Thank you so much for your support.

Dear Amazing Camp Fire donors,
This week, as department chair, I observed two different courses. One on geohazards the other on pollution science, both made references to the Camp Fire. Four months later, the fire and its aftermath are still very present on a daily basis. But, like the legendary phoenix, what is wonderful is watching how the community, and specifically the students, are rising up to a stronger future.
This forward motion was absolutely driven by your donations and for that, all of us here will be forever humbled and grateful. Just this week, one of our students was able to find a rental apartment (albeit 45 minutes away), and move off of a couch. Your donations helped with the down payment. Over January, two of our graduate students were able to go back to the field, purchasing field gear from your donations.
From the outpouring from the first day to the recent donations from Oberlin Geology and Utah State, it really is phenomenal how we are part of a broad and supportive community. To that end, I am still hoping to post a list of donating institutions. Please check our Chico State webpage soon and let me know if you are not listed. Again, it is an amazing impact to see the breadth of the community, not just the amount.

With sincere gratitude, on behalf of our students,

Russell

Hi everyone! I just wanted to say the students are getting better each day. It will be a long road but knowing the love out there means so much! We will be having a Resilience Party tomorrow and will post pictures. Thank you all for your donations!

Hello everyone. Northern California rains have blessed us with a closure to the fires and a chance to focus on the next step. I hope to answer everyone's questions soon. For now, yes, your contributions really do make a difference. We have 12 confirmed students (no faculty or staff) that have lost their homes. Each story is unique, and one day I hope to share them. Please know that the e-mails and texts I have received abound with gratitude. While my primary goal was to raise funds so folks can rebuild, my real goal was to rally our community and you all did that far beyond my expectations. The students have felt this and it really does bring them strength. Thank you.

Good news! The folks at GoFundMe have been working with us to get the money out to the students. If you are one displaced students, you will receive an e-mail from Micah Lehner, the glorious Administrative Support Coordinator for the GEOS department. Micah will be the one to transfer funds to you (Venmo, PayPal, etc.) directly from his personal bank account. If anyone wishes to see our books (without personal information, of course) to see how funds were distributed, please contact Micah or Russell
