Colorado Farm Bureau Foundation has established an agricultural disaster fund to help those in need, but we need your help. The Foundation has activated a fund to help those in agriculture devastated by the destructive fire that swept through Yuma County on March 18. Farmers and ranchers lost miles of fencing, hay and grass and they need your help.
The fire has endangered humans, livestock, structures and homes and has left a large swath of destruction. The fire that is now 100 percent contained burned a total of 24,000 acres, 38 square miles. There were two homes that were a complete loss.
All donations will be distributed to those farmers and ranchers affected by the destruction.
The CFB Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) charitable foundation with a catastrophic disaster fund dedicated to assisting farmers and ranchers in need following agricultural disasters such as blizzard, flood or wildfire. The fund was initially established to assist farmers and ranchers in southwest Colorado following devastating blizzards of 2007.
