We welcome the chance to work with you
One of the reasons that hundreds of local donors choose to give through the Foundation is that we are a resource for helping to make charitable giving more effective and more satisfying. We have deep roots in the community and our expert staff is available for personalized advice to help guide decisions about your fund and your plans for giving. After all, it's our job to help you create the giving strategy that has the greatest opportunity to make positive change in our region.
If you have an idea of where you'd like to give, but don't know which local organizations are doing the best work in that area, ask us. We are knowledgeable about the nonprofits in El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties, the important causes they serve, and the best programs in which to invest your valuable support. To learn more, please contact our Director of Donor Engagement, Chelsea Fahr, who will gladly assist you.
You may also be interested in browsing local nonprofits on GivingEdge, the Sacramento region’s community resource for information on local nonprofits. GivingEdge is designed to help donors learn more about the nonprofits that serve our area, discover new organizations that match their interests, and give "smarter" to local nonprofits during giving days and all year long. Each nonprofit profile is vetted by the Foundation.
Please visit GivingEdge to explore the nonprofits that serve our region, or learn more about its role in our philanthropy initiative.
We invite you to partner with the Foundation to address the key areas of need in our community we have identified in our Strategic Initiatives. Using a collaborative approach that brings community partnerships together to solve key local problems, we are promoting lasting and equitable change in our community. To partner with us in this collaborative work, please consider donating to our Building Equitable Communities Fund.
