Valley Fire Community Fund

The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) is asking for your help in giving relief to those affected by a recent natural disaster in Northern California. In September, the Valley Fire killed four, leveled more than 1,900 structures and left 3,000 homeless in communities in and around The Geysers geothermal field.

We ask our colleagues in the geothermal energy community to help in relief efforts. The GRC is collecting donations from its members around the world to help those affected by the Valley Fire. We will be sending the money collected to Mendo-Lake Credit Union where a fund has been set up to aid those impacted by the fire. All donations are tax deductible and can be made by:
