The Burney Regional Community Fund was established at the Shasta Regional Community Foundation to address the needs of the Greater Burney Region – Burney, Cassel, Fall River Mills, Hat Creek, McArthur, and Old Station. It was designed to build communities of philanthropists in the region now and forever.

Grants from the Burney Fund are awarded to nonprofit organizations and public entities through a competitive process, providing financial resources to nonprofit organizations and programs based on specific criteria established by local community leaders. The Burney Region grant cycle is announced each January with applications typically due in March and awards announced by the end of May.

The Shasta Regional Community Foundation is pleased to offer services that assist both the donor and the Burney Region by making grants to address immediate needs and to ensure thoughtful stewardship with an endowment fund for the benefit of the community in perpetuity.
