Companies often match employee contributions, but those companies also often require employees to write a check – and they require a EIN from us. Also, many people want to mail their contribution directly to us, since GoFundMe keeps almost 3% of every contribution. If you want to mail us your contribution, please send it to:

The Paradise Rotary Foundation
C/O Matthews, Hutton and Warren, CPA’s
2639 Forrest  Avenue, Suite 110
Chico, CA 95928

( Our EIN for your tax records is: 26-2754805 )

Disaster seems to always happen to other guys. Now WE ARE the other guys.

Our homes, lifelong memories, and in some cases, the lives of loved ones are lost to these catastrophic wildfires. Our merchants are rocked – with the loss of merchandise, their locations, and worst of all, their customers.

But we are Paradise Strong!

Learn more about the Paradise Rotary here.... 

Even as the embers glow, as the fires rage, we are in the first steps of recovery.

Rotary Club of Paradise launches this site to collect contributions from generous family, friends, and neighbors who have never met each other. The contribution you make is tax deductible via our 501(c)(3) Paradise Rotary Foundation. All of your contribution – 100% of it – goes to people in need, fire victims and heroic first responders who are helping us in our time of need.

We will use this money to help people get back on their feet. We will provide people with gift cards so that our merchants – and their employees – can survive, too.

With your generous support, all of those affected by the wildfires in Butte County will start to rebuild their lives, to replace the material things they’ve lost, to help others in our communities.

With your generous support, we will rebuild our community – our neighborhoods, our businesses, our playgrounds, our churches, and everything else that’s so easy to take for granted... Until it's gone.

That’s because we are Paradise Strong!

We appreciate your generous tax-deductible support.
