We hold hundreds of individual funds, each embodying a community member's dream for a better world.

Some of our amazing stories...

Chico Children's Museum

A group of Chico parents recognized a need for a children's museum, and turned to NVCF for help to make it happen.

Purses for Primates

Allison Boyer was in the seventh grade in Chico when she started her own nonprofit to help orangutans.

Celebration Foundation

The Celebration Foundation, which exists under the NVCF umbrella, has donated $116,500 for cancer support.

Our Mission

To fuel healing and compassion for a better world.

Through grantmaking, partnerships, financial and philanthropic services we are the North Valley’s hub for social change. We help individuals, families, businesses and nonprofits maximize their impact on the local and global community.

There have been some incredible people who have jumped in to help (after the Camp Fire) and it starts, in my opinion, with the North Valley Community Foundation -- raising millions of dollars, out there assessing the needs of our communities in real time and finding the best places to help.
