For over 45 years, the Fresno Regional Foundation has been helping residents give back to the region they love. We are the trusted steward for charitable giving in our region.


 Learn More about Drought’s Toll on Nonprofits The Central Valley Community Foundation (formerly the Fresno Regional Foundation) has released the first study focused on the challenges of community benefit organizations on the forefront of serving the poorest and most vulnerable residents of the drought-stricken San Joaquin Valley. 

Almost all of the 60 nonprofits surveyed rate the impact of California’s drought on their clients and their organizations as moderate or severe. 

Titled “Beyond Almonds and Blond Lawns: Investing in Nonprofit Organizations to Sustain Central Valley Communities Beyond the Drought,” the study was underwritten by The California Endowment and received support from the Kern Community Foundation.
