For Good. For Ever.March 2015
Created for and by the community, the Shasta Regional Community Foundation is a tax-exempt charitable organization working to connect people who care with causes that matter. Founded in 2000, the roots of the Foundation can be found in the passions of a group of residents concerned with the well-being of future generations. Today, the Foundation serves the region by building permanent endowments and scholarship funds, addressing needs through grant-making and providing community leadership.
The staff and local Board of Directors bring a wealth of knowledge and professional expertise in the areas of philanthropy and asset development in the north state. The Community Foundation works closely with a network of professional advisors, nonprofits, and businesses to understand the nature of need, the forces of change, available resources and the capacity for growth within the region.
Through sound investment management and professional accounting the Community Foundation’s assets yield a perpetual source of funding for donors to accomplish their charitable goals.
WAYS YOU CAN GIVE:
Start a fund with cash, investment assets, real property or estate planning: A fund at the Shasta Regional Community Foundation allows you to give to specific organizations, make gift s over time, honor your loved ones and grow your charitable investment without the administrative burden and expense of a private foundation.

The Stewardship Fund was established to support programs that address the most pressing local needs, emerging opportunities that improve the local quality of life and the foundation’s ongoing efforts to increase philanthropic endeavors throughout Shasta and Siskiyou counties.
Endowment gifts are a timeless investment in solutions for our communities.
