Your donation can help protect a neighborhood, community, or entire landscape from wildfire!

Fire Safe Marin accepts donations to support important wildfire safety projects in Marin County, California, measurably improving fire safety for all residents and visitors to Marin.  Our small staff and dedicated volunteers depend 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 believe in putting our money where our mouth is, and unlike many nonprofits do not invest heavily in fundraising.  If you donate, you can be assured that your dollars go directly to work “on the ground.”
