Nonprofit Support

Nonprofit Roundtable

A forum to promote, strengthen and advance the influence and effectiveness of Tehama County nonprofit agencies. Meeting monthly, approximately 35 agencies exchange ideas, discuss challenges and work to develop solutions to problems experienced by their charitable organizations. Common topics include: fundraising assistance, grant writing, volunteers, community outreach and data collection. Each year local nonprofits work together to staff a booth at the Tehama District Fair.

Participation in Community Events

Working with members of the Nonprofit Roundtable, activities are frequently held in support of community events. Examples include the Children’s Christmas Fair, Community Health Fair, Spookarama, Latino Outreach Health Fair, Greenville Health Fair, and Live Inspired For Tomorrow (LIFT.) For each of these events, youth activities are provided. As a member of the Red Bluff, Corning and Los Molinos Chambers of Commerce we participate in their various events.

For the Childrens Christmas Festival, Cornerstone Community Bank funded 250 volcano kits from Tehama County Resource Conservation District which were assembled by Tehama Together volunteers The following year Tehama Together funded weather kits from the Resource Conservation District. For the past five years we have provided five pound bags of mandarins to each family. These were purchased from Walmart and Whiteley Ranch.

Red Bluff Dog Park

The Red Bluff Dog Park in memory of Sher Wintle was constructed in 2016 with donations in memory of Sher Wintle, a long time community and dog enthusiast,  Tehama Together became the developmental organization and fiscal agent to help establish a 5013C. Tehama Together has been involved in improving the dog park along with the City Parks and Recreation Commission and the City of Red Bluff. 

Tehama Together donated the potable water system which was installed by the City of Red Bluff’s Public works department.Tehama Together was also able to secure two grants: $2500 from the McConnell Foundation in 2022 for the ADA sidewalks and $10,000 from PG&E in 21023 for the engineering, grading and installation of the water lines and cooling stations.

Over the past months volunteers have developed a tentative three-year plan and started to raise more awareness and participation through facebook photo contests, dog play days and parade entries.

We are actively seeking volunteers to review this plan to ensure that it best meets the expectations of dog owners and the community.
