By the Numbers

Since opening our first grant cycle in 2018, the California Fire Foundation has awarded 605 projects totaling more than $11.2 million in direct support for awardees actively serving high fire or other disaster threat regions and/or under-resourced communities across California. Each year, requests for grant funding steadily increase – with every funding cycle becoming more competitive than the last. 

Our grantees are actively addressing some of the state’s toughest climate-driven disaster needs. In 2023, thanks to the generous support of our major funding partners, the California Fire Foundation awarded over $1.38 million in support of 86 prevention, preparedness, relief and recovery projects statewide. In 2022, we awarded more than $1.95 million in support of 116 projects.
