The Community of Caring Hearts Charity was formed in 2012 by a group of community-minded charitable individuals with a desire to serve those in need in our community. It is a registered 501(c)(3) charity. We are an all-volunteer organization. No paid staff!

The CCHC raises funds through the promotion of charitable events. Funds raised from events and donations are allocated to local charities identified through a vetting process by the CCHC Board.

Donors can give confidently knowing that funds will be maximized and pooled with other donations to impact in a much larger way than individual contributions to a charity (the multiplier effect).

The goal of our organization is to distribute 100% of the net proceeds from each event that we host to non-profit organizations in our community. We are an all-volunteer organization. Our administrative costs are less than 1% of our gross income. Therefore, the impact of our donor proceeds for those in need in our community is much greater than other similar organizations.

CCHC also enhances its charter by ensuring that the charities we designate are stable and operating with low operating costs.



  • To enrich the lives of individuals and families who are in need by raising funds to support sustainable local charities that can improve and transform the future of the people they serve.

  • Facilitate a direct connection between donors and those in need

  • Ensure a high percentage of the funds raised reach individuals and families

  • Help other charities help those in need

Our organization will focus its charitable fundraising activities on local community organizations to assist individuals and families who are in need, and where our organizational support will make a significant difference.
