C2C Grows in Year 3

To inspire new supporters with the philanthropic history of NorthBay Healthcare Foundation's partnership with the community, work began in 2016 to energize the Commitment 2 Care (C2C) program with an updated website – www.NorthBayC2C.org – and a mobile app.

Plans called for rolling out the new platform in early 2017.

C2C was launched in 2014, to offer individuals and organizations an opportunity to establish charitable funds to support the donor's philanthropic wishes. These partners, under the C2C umbrella, joined to improve the health, education, safety and social fabric of our local community. They include:

  • The Robert and Barbara Lum Endowment Fund, established after the passing of Robert in 2013, and fully funded by friends and co-workers following the passing of Barbara in 2015. The endowment serves the babies and families of NorthBay Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in perpetuity.
  • Vogel Family Charitable Gift Annuity, established by a Fairfield couple to support babies and families of the NorthBay Neonatal Intensive Care Unity. Read more about their updated story here.
  • Run for Rare. The Noah Coughlan Charitable Fund, created by Vacaville native Noah Coughlan, helps raise awareness of Batten's Disease, and other rare diseases. Noah made two cross-country treks on foot to call attention to the disease, which is a terminal neurological disorder in children, and completed his third run, “Run for Rare” in July 2015.
  • Noah's Reef Charitable Fund, established to help Solano County youth with special needs, such as Down syndrome and autism. The fund's mission is to provide learning tools, therapy needs, and other items that otherwise might not be attainable for those in need.
  • The Shaddix Family Charitable Fund. Created by Jacoby Shaddix, lead singer of the Papa Roach band, this fund supports NorthBay Hospice & Bereavement and the Shaddix Family “Run it Forward” fund.
  • The Wayne and Scottie Senalik Donor Advised Fund. Created by local businessman Wayne Senalik, former plant manager of Anheuser-Busch and former chairman of NorthBay Healthcare Foundation board, and his wife, Scottie, this fund supports several community needs programs.
  • The Mike and Diane Paulik Donor Advised Fund. Created by Mike Paulik, former manager of Alza, and current member of NorthBay Healthcare Foundation board, and his wife, Diane, this fund supports several community needs programs.

C2C also supports other civic organizations and businesses that have demonstrated their commitment to care with local philanthropic intent, such as Midnight Sun, Pink Heals and Pink Lemonade.
