Rolling Hills Community Foundation is proud of its 10 years history, and looks forward to continued growth with partners, old and new.
Our best bet has always been on our community, where the pay off is always guaranteed.Â With over 7.5 million given in support of education, public safety, community organizations and youth sports leagues in the last 10 years, the Rolling Hills Community Foundation has become a proud partner with some of the North State’s most innovative people and projects.
We believe education is the sharpest tool to create communities we can all enjoy and have a long history supporting fresh thinking. We know that learning happens everywhere, from our backyard gem at Lassen Volcanic National Park, to Makerspaces, to community art studios, and school classrooms.
That’s why we’ve invested heavily in youth programs with the Lassen Park Foundation, the Green Room Community Arts Studio, College Options and many more. As foundational sponsors of Expect More Tehama, we’ve assured 8th graders have had access to college visits and leadership training and have convened thousands of community members over six years to increase their own investments of young people.
And we have fun doing it! Some of our greatest fundraisers have been great fun-raisers as well. When we’ve rev’d up our engines with the American Corvette Club at our Ribs and Rods party, Chico’s Jesus Center and Esplanade House have earned $39,000 in six years.Â The Handi-Riders have raised approximately $57, 000 from the ribs cook off. Those who have hit the greens at Mercy Foundation North’s annual Par Fore the Cause tournaments have raised over $200,000 for community hospitals. When we Laissez les bons temps roulet at our Mardi Craw festival, the Red Bluff Tehama Chamber of Commerce continued shining a bright light on our community assets.
Each February we join our Corning Rotary Club to highlight the best in local wines, arts and chowders at the Art, Food and Wine Show. Not only have we raised over $38,700 for their good works in the last six years, but we’ve supported Corning High School students in creating the graphics for the annual event, providing valuable real-world job experience in the design and marketing business.
We’ve been honored to support our young athletes as they learn skills that keep them in the game and prepared for life through sports training and competition. We’ve purchased equipment for Corning Police Activities League, Corning Youth Soccer League, Corning Little League, Red Bluff Triton Swim Team, Tehama County’s Junior Giants program and Anderson Aqua-Gators Swim Club.
Of course, an integral component of a healthy community is its public safety system. We’ve supported the Orland Volunteers in Police in their bicycle helmet giveaway program and have contributed to the Red Bluff Police K-9 Capitol Campaign. Over at the Red Bluff Fire Department, firefighters learn new safety skills and techniques using technology we’ve provided.
