Your Donation Can Help Protect a Neighborhood, Community, or Entire Landscape from Wildfire!
We need your help! FIRESafe MARIN depends on donations from the community, foundations, private and public grants, and volunteers to achieve our mission of enhancing Marin's wildfire preparedness.
Our funds go directly to important wildfire safety projects in Marin County, California, measurably improving fire safety for all residents and visitors to Marin. Our staff of dedicated volunteers depends on support from contributors like you to complete these vital projects, and your donation will be used to directly support our mission.
We operate with EXTREMELY low overhead - virtually every dollar donated or secured through grants goes directly to enhancing Marin and California's wildfire safety through our education, vegetation management, planning and mitigation activities. We do not conduct any fundraising! If you donate, you can be assured that your dollars go directly to work "on the ground," not into fundraising/direct mail like many other non-profits.
How much can I donate, and what will be accomplished?
Here are some examples of what your donation can accomplish: $500 helps pay for vegetation removal at 5-10 properties. $1000 will cover a chipper day for a community. $10,000 will provide evacuation route improvements for an entire neighborhood, or a planning project to help protect an entire city. $100,000 can help protect 1,000 homes through a large scale vegetation management project. A $1,000,000 endowment will provide a landscape scale defense against wildfire, or protect a community for a generation.
NEW! Donation under $5,000 can be made online by credit card!
