About CHEF:
The mission of the Community Health and Education Foundation is to serve the Tri-Valley Region of the San Francisco Bay Area by providing resources and opportunities for local non-profits to foster a community of giving.
CHEF is a small, local non-profit serving the Tri-Valley Region of the San Francisco Bay Area. They provide resources and opportunities for local non-profits to foster a community of giving. Their values are to improve the health and education services in the Tri-Valley community through collaboration with organizations that:
  • Support Tri-Valley youth
  • Care and advocate for the under-served members of our community
  • Pursue the humane treatment of animals
In order to encourage an increase in serving and giving in our community, CHEF launched its Matching Program, matching 1 dollar for every 2 dollars donated in support of non-profits who serve the Tri-Valley Region.
