Help Us Start Our Mission
Sponsor Before it Burns
Before it Burns is a passion project started by those who have suffered from loss due to wildfires. The funding to start a nonprofit is steep, but those involved are dedicated to the mission: empowering communities to bury their power lines and prepare for emergency evacuations in the event of a fire.
What will this organization do?
- Encourage fire-preparedness in communities.
- Help communities organize efforts to put power lines underground.
- Provide fire evacuation kits for families and individuals.
Your contribution here will go towards beginning the foundation as a true 501(c)(3) and the current content on this website.
Please take note that since this is not a 501(c)(3) organization yet, your donation on this form will not be tax deductible.
Right now, we’re focusing on building the proper structure and financing to get off the ground. Right now we’re currently forming our board and reaching out to local partners. If you’d like to be more directly involved, let us know.

Why Before it Burns?
A fire is beyond destructive and devastating. It erases the memory of everything that once existed. It cleanses the earth, but it also takes everything in its path. Fire is a force to be reckoned with, not just defended against.
The idea behind Before it Burns is to get ready for this level of devastation, both by trying to prevent it from happening and by having a plan for when it does. Get ahead of the flames.
