Therapeutic Access Scholarship Fund

Fund Purpose

The primary purpose of the Fund shall be to provide a scholarship to help individuals and families who are unable to access therapeutic services for mental health due to financial constraints. This can include those who have insurance that does not cover their care, and those who are unable to pay private fees for support. Scholarships will be paid directly to providers on behalf of awardees.

More Info

We believe that every individual deserves comprehensive and compassionate therapeutic care, regardless of cost. Part of our resilience here in Butte County is our collective commitment to quality mental health services- but we are facing an ever-increasing challenge when it comes to accessing this care. Many of our neighbors have insurance that does not cover their needed services, but who are unable to pay private fees for quality therapeutic care. We are seeking to meet this need and gap in our community by providing scholarships to those who most urgently need mental health care, but who would not be able to access it without a little financial support.

Gratitude Walk Fund

Fund Purpose

The purpose of the Fund shall be to raise money to support a Gratitude Walk event in Chico. The Gratitude Walk Fund will dedicate proceeds from the event to support up to three local nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organizations per event to be selected by participants.

More Info

Our vision and goal for the Gratitude Walk is to get the entire Chico community thinking about what they’re grateful for. We believe this idea is powerful; personally, emotionally, and spiritually. What a truly awesome way to bring the community together and reinforce the benefits of gratitude. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships. This unity-building event’s intent is also to inspire recognition and support for those in our community that give in service to a more vibrant, loving, connected, and healthy community.

I think you’d agree that we have so much to be grateful for in our lives…even just the tiniest of things. The Gratitude Walk is sure to be one of Chico’s favorite events and a source of great community involvement, family enjoyment, and personal fulfillment. Not only is the Gratitude Walk a community building event and a gift in itself, the proceeds will benefit up to three local organizations that will be selected by the local community. Please join us on November 5th for the 1st Walk in Bidwell Park!
