Chino Hills Community Foundation
Supporting Culture, Education & Recreation in Chino Hills
The Chino Hills Community Foundation was formed with a mission "to promote and support the cultural, educational, and recreational needs of the City of Chino Hills through the establishment of a permanent endowment fund." The Foundation's initial project goal was to raise funds to enhance the Children's section, and other areas, of the new James S. Thalman Chino Hills Branch Library.
Strong Fundraising Effort Builds Strong Base
The Foundation built a strong base during its inaugural fundraising campaign in 2009 which resulted in a $75,000 contribution to fund enhancements at the James S. Thalman Chino Hills Branch Library. Board members utilized 2010 to begin planning some exciting new "signature" events for 2011 and raised $55,000 at the yearly Donor's Reception. The Spring Home Tour was launched in April of 2011 and included visits to three unique homes in Chino Hills. A lovely reception at the last home in Oak Tree Downs put a finishing touch on the day. Over 250 people enjoyed a glimpse into these beautiful homes and the event raised $13,000 for the Foundation. The 3rd Annual Donor's Reception in June netted $47,000 from supporters. The 2011 fundraising year came to a close with the "Wine Walk at the Shoppes" in October. The community had a great time at this event as 540 people visited various stores at the Shoppes to enjoy "tastes" of food and wine. The Wine Walk exceeded all expectations and raised $21,000, which helped the Foundation exceed their goals for the year.
The Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
