Efforts Raise $2 Million to Help Wildfire Victims

Drovers Magazine, a Farm Journal Media franchise, and the Farm Journal  Foundation recently announced the acceptance of a historic challenge by global philanthropist and American farmer-rancher Howard G. Buffet to raise at least $2 million to help ranching victims of the devastating wildfires that burned 1.6 million acres in Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, and Colorado last month. 
All monetary donations to the New Drovers/Farm Journal Million Dollar Wildfire Relief Challenge will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Howard G. Buffet Foundation, up to $1 million. Drovers Magazine Editorial Director Greg Henderson explains how it came about...
While the ag community rallied to deliver hay and other in-kind contributions, the long-term job of rebuilding is really just beginning. Henderson says there are several ways to make donations.
The money collected thru this drive will go toward fencing.
All donations will be administered through the Working Ranch Cowboys Association, a respected national nonprofit dedicated to assisting working ranch cowboys and their families in times of need.
