Making wishes come true
Established in 2006, The Community Wish Foundation (CWF) was formed as a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization to strengthen the communities of Butte, Glenn, Tehama, and Colusa counties. CWF gives grants or "wishes" in the following focus areas: Education, Youth, Seniors, Environment, and the Community. Additionally, through a special program, scholarships are awarded once a year through the Medical Training Scholarship Program.
Grants are given on the "Pay It Forward" concept which is a way of maximizing the impact of the grant within the community. What this means is that when a "wish" is granted, the recipient must fulfill their "pay it forward" obligation by performing a service or lending a hand to address another need in the community. Everyone has a gift or talent to pass on and it is this process that allows communities to shine and truly make wishes come true!
