“Youth on the Ridge Community Foundation raises vital funds and awareness to benefit non-profit organizations that provide educational, enrichment, recreational and leadership opportunities to youth."

On November 8, 2018 Paradise suffered the most destructive wild-fire in California history. Our hearts are broken  over the loss and devastation that our community has experienced thru the Camp Fire.  However, while much of the physical aspect of our Town is currently gone, our spirit remains.  We remain committed to providing enduring support of one of Paradise's most precious resources; our youth. The Camp Fire has taken much from so many. We don’t want our youth to lose their childhoods as well. We are dedicated to rebuilding and reinforcing the foundations of a happy childhood.  

The youth organizations the Paradise Chocolate Fest benefits serve not just the kids and teens; they support families, foster friendships, and provide a sense of belonging. These things are more important than ever for our traumatized youth on the Paradise Ridge. With the support of our community and countless others who share the vision of providing for youth, we will continue to supply enduring support to the organizations that provide the fun, life lessons and memories that our children and teens deserve.

In the past 9 years alone, the Paradise Chocolate Fest has distributed over $200,000.00 to youth organizations on the Ridge. These vital funds support music & academic programs, provide scholarships to summer camp and dance classes, youth leadership training, sports equipment, reading programs, vision screening, food banks and much, much more.
