Rise and Regenerate Fund

The economic repercussions of the fires continue to be felt acutely in communities, as does the emotional trauma experienced by community residents. Of specific concern are marginalized and vulnerable communities without the resources and supports needed to fully recover. Included in the fund are leading providers of care, community based institutions and community foundations that remain on the front lines of the ongoing efforts to heal and regenerate. Please consider giving generously!

The story behind the fund

Mayacamas Ranch was a Calistoga-based retreat known as a gathering place for wisdom, community and healing. For the past decade they have been the leading destination for socially-minded groups to meet in an inspiring natural setting and have drawn 50,000 guests and 1,000 groups to slow down, recharge, connect and transform. Destroyed in the 2017 Tubbs Fire, its owner, David Levy, is committed to helping his neighbors as he tries to rebuild his own property. In partnership with Goodnation, Mayacamas Ranch has created the Rise and Regenerate Fund, an opportunity for people to donate their PG&E claim to help other wildfire victims still on the road to recovery.

Recent reports show a majority of wildfire victims have not yet filed claims, or might not even apply for their wildfire damage financial settlements, in part because they think there are others in greater need of support. 

“It may seem counterintuitive that people donate money they are receiving as compensation for damages to their property, but many California wildfire victims are not filing claims because they feel there are others who need the money more than they do,” said Rob Hansen, CEO of Goodnation. “If you don’t file before the deadline, the money will most definitely not get to those who are still suffering. We built the Rise and Regenerate Fund as an easy and innovative way to ensure the PG&E claim money reaches the victims who need it the most and as quickly as possible.”

While the choice to donate one’s settlement money is not uncommon, the platform created by Goodnation and Mayacamas Ranch is unique. The Rise and Regenerate Fund allows donations of settlement money to a select number of fully vetted, high-impact organizations bringing comfort, care and relief to those still suffering in the aftermath of the devastating California wildfires.

“As a wildfire survivor myself, I understand the devastating trauma people across the state are experiencing, and I also know the transformational and healing power of giving back and helping others,” said Levy. “In the midst of a crisis, we are often too overwhelmed to take action. That’s why what we’re doing with Goodnation is truly innovative. We’re reaching people who want to help and giving them the ability to easily and immediately act upon that intent.”

How to file and redirect your PG&E claim

The December 31, 2019 deadline to file for $8.4 billion PG&E set aside in wildfire compensation is rapidly approaching. PG&E equipment was blamed for starting fires that affected as many as 100,000 people eligible to file a claim.

For resources on how to file your claim, you can visit PG&E Fire Info (not affiliated with Goodnation).

After you file your claim, return here to pledge part or all of your claim to the nonprofits in the fund by following the steps in the below form.
