About Us

The Hignell Companies Foundation

A fund of North Valley Community Foundation

Community Impact Fund

The Hignell Companies Foundation is excited to offer financial resources to eligible community organizations. Our goals and values reflect our corporate mission statement: Creating Caring Communities that Transform Lives. A portion of our foundation funds the needs of our family of employees, and a portion is allocated to help others in our community who are working towards goals that align with our corporate vision.

The Community Impact Fund of The Hignell Companies Foundation provides financial resources for the community in areas we desire to make an impact. All grant applications are reviewed by the Community Impact Fund Advisory Team, made up of employees from The Hignell Companies. Grants are available for industry investment, social welfare, community betterment, and Christian spiritual growth and transformation.

Along with giving grants, each year the Hignell Companies Foundation will select a Major Initiative to care for families in our area. This year we are partnering with Habitat for Humanity. Click here for more information.

Our giving with the Community Impact Fund reflects our focus, our core beliefs and our trust in God. Our foundation exists:

  • To bring transformation within our sphere of influence: our employees, our customers, the cities of Chico and Oroville, and beyond.
  • To make our company a supernatural incubator from which people are launched into their divine destiny.
  • To provide financial resources beyond our wildest expectations: to meet the needs of employees, customers, and community for whom we are called to care.

Our methods are simple: we work in and through relationships, seek to honor and encourage one another, demonstrate unwavering integrity, practice uncommon generosity, and foster growth and innovation.

Our giving programs—our Employee Care Fund and our Community Impact Fund—embody these principles and beliefs. Our hope is that we might reflect God's love through our own practice of uncommon generosity and truly inspire our community at large to live out their divine destiny.
