Charities exist to support independent groups and to help manage non-profit organiztions to succeed.

The Chico SummerFest is happy to partner with both the Elks Lodge and the Chico Men's Rugby Club.  Both of these Non-Profit groups are supporting the festival and in exchange, we are donating a percentage of the proceeds.

We are happy to work with these Chico-Based organizations
