The Howard G. Buffett Foundation is partnering with the Drovers/Farm Journal Foundation Million Dollar Wildfire Relief Challenge to aid those recovering from the recent wildfires. 

The Howard G. Buffett Foundation pledged to match up to $1 million in donations that are made to the Challenge by July 31.

More than 97% of all donations will go directly to those impacted by the fires.

According to the Wildfire Relief Fund, it will cost up to $10,000 per mile to replace the 18,000 miles of fencing lost in the March wildfires.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime disaster, and ranchers will have both immediate and longer-term needs to rebuild what they've lost," says Howard G. Buffett, Chairman and CEO of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation.
