What We Do

The Community Foundation builds trust through relationship, integrity, and by providing safe places for donors to give their resources.

We are a nonprofit, public charity serving the people of Shasta, Siskiyou and Tehama counties, with a mission to impact the region through the power of giving. Since 2000, the Community Foundation has awarded over $46.5 million in grants, made possible by the generosity of their fund holders and professional fund management practices.
