Annie B's Community Drive -Chico | Aug 1-Sept 30

Between August 1 and September 30, participating organizations actively seek donations for our community. Donors are encouraged to give with the incentive of a percentage grant made from the Annie B’s Grant Pool. Last year the percentage grant was 8% meaning that for each dollar raised by a charity, the Annie B’s Grant Pool gave an additional eight cents. The grant pool is expected to be $100,000 again this year. One hundred percent of all Annie B’s donations go directly to participating nonprofits.


During the past 7 years, Annie B's Community Drive has contributed nearly $7 million to hundereds of local charities in Butte, Colusa, Glenn, & Tehama counties.
