Welcome to Silvanus Foundation!
Silvanus Foundation was founded by Nathan Liu, a high school student who loves his community, has dedicated his time and efforts to wildfire prevention and related research. Witnessing the devastating impact of California wildfires in recent years, Nathan felt compelled to make a difference. Since the age of 12, he has been actively involved in conducting research and organizing fundraising initiatives to combat this pressing issue.
The scale and destruction of the 2021 wildfires in California left an indelible mark on Nathan's heart and prompted him to take action. In 2018, at just 12 years old, Nathan initiated a video campaign to raise funds for the victims of the Paradise Fire. This initial endeavor ignited his passion for helping those affected by wildfires.
In 2019, Nathan harnessed the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze over 108 million fire data points, successfully distinguishing between natural and human-caused fires. His groundbreaking research earned him the prestigious title of Synopsys Science Champion. Undeterred, Nathan continued his investigations, focusing on the correlation between wildfires and lightning during the 2020 Camp Fire. This relentless pursuit of knowledge led to him being recognized as Synopsys' Most Promising Young Scientist earlier this year.
Inspired by the heroism and sacrifice of firefighters who protect our communities, Nathan organized the first "Tribute to Fallen Hero" (TTFH) online charity concert on December 12, 2020. Through this event, he raised over $13,000 for the California Fire Foundation. This non-profit organization provides emotional and financial assistance to the families of firefighters who tragically lose their lives in the line of duty. As we navigate the post-pandemic world and face the ongoing threat of wildfires in California, Nathan is committed to continuing this benevolent action by utilizing our collective time and talents to raise funds and pay tribute to these fallen heroes.
Building upon the success of the initial charity concert, Silvanus Foundation has organized subsequent events to support our cause. On December 4, 2021, we held "The 2nd Tribute to Fallen Heroes (TTFH) Benefit Concert," followed by the "3rd Tribute to Fallen Heroes (TTFH) Charity Golf Tournament and Gala/Concert" on October 22, 2022, and the "4th Tribute To Fallen Heroes (TTFH) Benefit Concert and Forum" on September 23, 2023. These events not only honor the brave firefighters but also raise vital funds for our ongoing wildfire prevention efforts.
Till today, Nathan Liu organized the 4 years' annual Tribute to Fallen Heroes (TTFH) Benefit events and we totally fundraised around $87,000 and supported 20 scholarships of Daniel A. Terry Scholarship of California Fire Foundation. Please see the Testmonials below.
Recognizing the necessity and importance of a dedicated organization, Nathan established Silvanus Foundation in March 2022. Our foundation aims to unite individuals who share a common goal inspired by the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through collective action and the power of community, we strive to raise awareness and funds to support wildfire prevention initiatives.
We invite you to join Silvanus Foundation in our mission to combat wildfires and protect our communities. Whether you want to contribute your time, talents, or financial support, every contribution makes a significant impact. Together, we can create a safer and more resilient future for California.

The Daniel A. Terry Scholarship has made it possible for me to follow in my father’s footsteps. It has helped me pay for courses throughout my time in college, and with this scholarship I will be able to obtain my bachelor’s degree in psychology at the end of this upcoming semester. It will also help me pay for paramedic school in the future, which is an important stepping stone for me as I would like to join the fire department. I am forever grateful for what this scholarship has provided me with.
Silvanus Foundation is a 501c (3) nonprofit organization (EIN# 88-0820710). We need your support to make a better world.
