THANKS A MILLION! NORTH STATE GIVING TUESDAY 

Grantmaking 

Our grants are made possible through the contributions of individual donors and nonprofit donor funds managed by the Community Foundation. Some are driven by the charitable interests of our donors, and others come from our unrestricted funds that allow us to operate at our most strategic level, investing in needs as they change over time, advancing long-term strategic goals, and taking on key leadership roles.

Community Arts Endowment Fund

The Articipate Campaign that began in 2010 is now the Community Arts Endowment Fund at the Shasta Regional Community Foundation.

Through the power of endowment, a gift made to the fund today will continue to grow, allowing grants for the presentation and creation of "new artistic work" to be given in support of artists and art projects in perpetuity. Examples range from visual public art, such as murals and sculptures to other graphic art forms, displayed or presented in public areas in Shasta and Siskiyou counties.

  • 100% of your donation (excluding online credit card processing fees) will go to Carr Fire recovery efforts.

As Shasta County’s only long-term recovery fund, the Community Foundation and its partners are committed to play the important transitional role required for mid and long-term recovery support. Challenges lay ahead, and the road to recovery is a multi-year process.

View the disbursements, and you will see that there are a wide-range of recovery efforts in place. The local grant review committee is focused on the individuals in our region with projects such as water lines, power poles and septic system installations and preparing for the construction season to get survivors back into homes. We know these types of projects require significant investment and by working closely with the NorCal Community Recovery Team, we will do what we can with your donations to restore neighborhoods that have lost so much.

Your gift to the Community Disaster Relief Fund is an investment for resilience in our communities. Thank you. If you have any questions or comments about the Fund, we encourage you to email us at info@shastarcf.org, or call 530-244-1219.
