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 and Greenville Health Fair. For each of these events, youth activities are provided.

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.
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.
