Jacobs California Employees Fire Relief

$82,186 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 543 people in 7 months
Created July 30, 2018
Our thoughts are with the residents of the Redding area impacted by the Northern California Wildfires, including nearly 130 Jacobs staff and their families who have been displaced from their homes due to the widespread evacuations. Sadly, three of our co-workers have lost their homes to the wildfire.

We know the hearts of our Jacobs employees are big, and that there will be a desire to help our colleagues. This GoFundMe page provides a way for Jacobs employees around the world to demonstrate their Culture of Caring and donate directly to members of our Jacobs family who have been impacted by the Northern California wildfires.

Funds collected from this campaign will go DIRECTLY to Jacobs employees in need. Jacobs will match each donation dollar-for- dollar up to $25,000. Your donations will help cover the cost of food, shelter, medical expenses and other necessities for members of our Jacobs family. Individual and group contributions are welcome.  Every donation, kind thought, and encouraging message helps. 

This campaign is hosted by Jacobs Engineering Group Inc.   The legitimacy of this campaign can be verified by visiting the JacobsConnect information page which links to this page.  Funds will be collected through Jacobs' headquarters office in Dallas, Texas. Requests for financial support will be administered by a committee of Jacobs staff and senior executives. Funds will be distributed based on demonstrated employee need related to damage or loss caused by the fires.

You will note that our total funds raised just jumped significantly. That's because the $25k matching funds pledged by Jacobs leadership has been posted. Keep those donations coming and we'll inform you when the campaign will be closing. The wildfire is still raging and the need for assistance is still great. Thank you all for all your support.
