Become a Fundholder

Make a difference in the life of this community – now and always

For over 30 years, we have been helping donors like you express their passion for giving. We know that giving is as individual as the giver, and it is a reflection of you – your values, your interests and your hopes for the future. 

Our goal is to be your trusted partner in giving, making your experience as a donor both easy and fulfilling. We offer personalized philanthropy to each of our fundholders and house a variety of charitable funds in order to help turn good intentions into great accomplishments. Through our work with donors like you, we are the leader in growing philanthropy regionwide and enhancing its enduring impact on quality of life in El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo counties.

In our three decades of service to the Sacramento region, we have helped hundreds of philanthropic-minded members of our community realize their charitable goals – many of whom have generously shared their stories with the Foundation. By partnering with the Foundation, you too can bring change to community.
