About The Chill Foundation
Chill was Founded in 1995 by Jake and Donna Carpenter,
Founders of Burton Snowboards.
Chill has served more than 20,000 young people since the program began, working with approximately 1,400 youth annually. We work with social service agencies, mental health agencies, foster care programs, juvenile justice programs, and schools in local communities to select youth participants. Everything is provided to the youth at no cost.
We focus on the resiliency of our participants to help them reach their full potential and see that there is a path out of their current circumstances. Their current situation doesn't have to define them or determine their path in life; Chill helps them to realize alternatives beyond the struggles they are dealing with.
