Welcome to the CAL FIRE Benevolent Foundation site!
The Foundation provides financial assistance for the public good, by participating with burn centers and providing disaster relief throughout the state of California to relieve the burden on families.
The money raised goes directly to assist firefighters, their families, those that support firefighters, and to assist burn victims. Independent audits ensure transparency for all funds allocated.
The CAL FIRE Benevolent Foundation’s main source of funding is its golf tournaments and wonderful donors like you. Find out more about our events and sign up for the Annual Invitational Golf/Wine Tasting Event on our events page!
