Paradise Art Center Support Fund
The primary purpose of this fund is to enhance the charitable contributions to the Nonprofit through the Foundation website and provide an opportunity for donations to be made online with credit cards.
Note to donors: North Valley Community Foundation (NVCF) provides this page for the convenience of the charitable organization noted above. Donors are provided an electronic tax receipt by NVCF shortly after the donation is made. An administrative fee of 5% is deducted from the donation as well as the fee charged by the card processing company, and the net amount is sent to the charitable organization not later than 30 days after the end of the month in which the donation is made. All amounts sent to the charitable organization are for its discretionary use.
Paradise Art Center, a volunteer non-profit organization funded primarily through donations and supported by volunteers, has been active in Paradise for 55 years and resides in a 100+ year old building that is one of the oldest structures to survive in the downtown area. The Art Center strives to reach out to the greater Paradise community in order to engage artists in creative art-making, to encourage community members to participate in art-related activities, and to enrich the town through meaningful, inclusive, visual art experiences, for the purpose of creating a community that recognizes and appreciates the value of visual arts. The devastating Camp Fire of November 2018 has greatly reduced the number of opportunities for enrichment, social engagement, art studio space and art education in our area. We're committed to providing community members the proven therapeutic benefits of art as a way to express themselves, decrease anxiety and depression, and adapt to change. We are helping our community heal through classes and events that are open to all.
