How to Raise Money for CTWF

Thank you for helping us raise money to support the long-term recovery efforts of the Central Texas wildfires.

The Central Texas Wildfire Fund was created to support the nonprofits that are working in the communities affected by the wildfire disasters. Hundreds of home were lost and thousands of people were displaced, leaving many in emotional and financial situations that will be difficult to overcome.

Your help as a fundraiser means the Austin Community Foundation can have a bigger impact rebuilding lives, restoring communities and giving them hope for a positive outcome. Thank you.
