In response to the COVID-19 health emergency, the Calaveras Community Foundation (CCF) has established a program to provide grants to local non-profit organizations providing support in this time of need. For more information, non-profit organizations may contact CCF via email at:, or by phone: 209/736-1845.

CCF is also seeking donations to help support this effort. CCF was very grateful for the support during the Butte Fire and donations received during that time were turned into grants, helping many residents get back on their feet. Our hope is to again be able to give out many grants through the generosity of those living in the County who are able to financially assist us.

You may donate either by sending a check to CCF at: PO Box 1436, Angels Camp, CA 95222, or via PayPal through our website. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law. CCF’s tax ID number is 68-0472056.

If you have questions or if your organization would like to apply for an assistance grant, please contact CCF. Please remember that only non-profit groups may apply, as CCF is prohibited by the IRS from giving money directly to individuals.

Calaveras Community Foundation (CCF) is the recipient of a generous $5000 donation from Save Mart Supermarkets charitable organization, CARES. These funds will benefit the Career and Technical Training Scholarship Fund, which gives options to high school graduates other than a four-year college education.

Angels Camp Store Managers, previously Ray Gonzales, and at present, John Romine, both contacted Save Mart CARES on behalf of CCF and encouraged the board to consider supporting the Career and Technical Training Fund. CCF is most grateful for this generous donation.

Most available scholarships offered today for high school seniors, both locally and nationally, are offered with the mind-set that a four-year college education is ideal for most youth. That doesn’t seem to be the case. A wide range of opportunities exist in our region for youth seeking associate degrees and certificates that lead to  good paying and alternative career paths.

Junior colleges and trade institutions offer courses in firefighting, emergency first response, sports medicine, welding, automotive services, construction technology, nursing, health care, CHP officer training, culinary arts, dental hygienist, agriculture and commercial photography.
