Redding Rancheria Community Fund Awards over $95,000 to North State Nonprofits

The Redding Rancheria Community Fund of Community Foundation of the North State, is pleased to announce spring grant awards totaling $95,270 to organizations in Shasta and Trinity counties.

The Community Foundation received a record-breaking 90 applications for the fund, illustrating the high need still experienced by non-profits in our region – many of which are still recovering from cancelled fundraising events and increased demand on services. Awarded projects support a diverse array of causes with a particular focus, this round, on rural fire districts, as we prepare for what could be a difficult fire season.

Tracy Edwards, Chief Executive Officer at the Redding Rancheria says, “We are proud to play our part in the community. Knowing how much need exists in our region, decision-making continues to be difficult. We are dedicated to supporting worthy causes in our region and know there will be additional opportunities in the future, starting with our next grant cycle in the Fall.”

“We are fortunate for the generosity of the Redding Rancheria which is a powerhouse funder for our area. Their commitment to local non-profits is truly admirable and touches the lives of many people in our communities.” says Kerry Caranci, Chief Executive Officer at Community Foundation of the North State.

The Redding Rancheria Community Fund – established in 2001 to support worthy causes in Shasta and Trinity counties – is one of the longest-standing funds at the Community Foundation. Since the fund inception, over $3.6 million in grants have been awarded. For a detailed list of 2021 awards from Redding Rancheria Community Fund, visit the website at
