The Invictus Fund

Wildfire Relief

The Napa Valley and surrounding areas once again have been deeply affected by devastating and deadly wildfires. While our hearts are heavy, our spirits are lifted by the outpouring of compassion from our friends around the world—as well as by the heroic efforts of first responders. We are deeply grateful.

43 lives were lost
245,000 acres of our iconic wine country was burned
8,900 structures were incinerated
100,000 people were forced to evacuate their homes
11,000 firefighters battled the destructive fires
Estimated losses exceed $3 billion

Many of our neighbors and employees have been displaced or left with nothing. As we search for ways to assist the steadfast members of our team and our community who have endured a great deal of loss, we feel it our responsibility to respond to the call of duty.

The enormity of this tragedy cannot be measured by statistics and numbers alone, as it is impossible to quantify the emotional wounds so many have sustained. As we look forward, we recognize that it may take years for the community to recover fully.

Still, the people of the Napa Valley have survived Prohibition, substantial economic downturns, phylloxera, fires, and earthquakes and have emerged from each of these disasters stronger and more vibrant than before. Together, we will do so once again.

On behalf of those who have lost their homes or been displaced, The Napa Valley Reserve and Meadowood have reactivated The Invictus Fund NV, which began in effort to directly help those impacted most severely by the fires of 2017.

Our main goal is to assist those individuals with urgent needs in our workplace and community. Through this fund, we intend to provide support, first, to our colleagues and immediate neighbors; our efforts will then be extended to families within our greater community who have been overlooked. The Invictus Fund NV is a U.S. 501(c)(3) public charity (EIN: 82-3199730). You will receive a receipt from Invictus Fund NV that will serve as the official record of your donation for tax purposes.
