GoFundMe Launches Hub for California Wildfire Relief Campaigns

SACRAMENTO — Crowdfunding site GoFundMe has collected and verified dozens of campaigns for California wildfire relief.

Some of the campaigns will go toward communities, others go toward individuals and families.

Since Sunday, more than a dozen wildfires across Northern California have destroyed thousands of homes and businesses and killed at least 15 people.

The Trump administration made a federal major disaster declaration for California, Vice President Mike Pence announced Tuesday in Sacramento.

GoFundMe says each of the campaigns in its wildfire relief hub have been backed by the “GoFundMe Guarantee,” which the site says will ensure donations are sent to the right place.
