Dear Friends,

It is with a heavy heart we are sending today's Trending Today, understanding the most devastating spate of wildfires to strike California in modern history continue to burn. With much of this destruction and tragedy so close to home in Napa and Santa Rosa, the horrific scale of things is just beginning to come into focus: 31 confirmed dead, with hundreds more still missing as of this morning. Thousands of homes and businesses destroyed, including whole neighborhoods reduced to smoldering rubble. It certainly puts things into perspective for all of us.

Fortunately, tough times do not last, but tough people do. And in the meantime, please see below for what YOU can do to directly help.

Additionally, Towerpoint Wealth is committed to directly helping as well, and we are pleased to offer a 100% match, up to $25,000, of any fire-related charitable donation made by any of you. Please simply email us your donation receipt at, and we will promptly email you our matching donation receipt within 48 hours.
