You direct the grant, and we'll take care of the rest
Granting to your favorite nonprofit organizations from your charitable fund at the Foundation is a breeze. Foundation donors can recommend grants online through the donor portal or by printing and returning our Grant Recommendation Form.
More often than not, our donors have a clear sense of the nonprofit organizations and causes they wish to support in the capital area or across the nation. If you are interested in discovering new nonprofits in the Sacramento region, please browse GivingEdge, the region's online nonprofit database, or contact Chelsea Fahr, Director of Donor Engagement, who is happy to provide information related to nonprofit organizations in the areas that you care about. After all, we are here to help!
A man of great faith and heart, Joe took steps to ensure that the region’s military veterans were cared for, and before he passed away, he established the Ruzich Family Fund. Today, his brothers make grants from the endowment to programs serving veterans in need.
Once you have selected an organization to receive a grant from your fund, please submit the grant through the donor portal, your direct connection to your fund at the Foundation. In the donor portal, you can:
View fund balances, gifts, and grants from the fund. Gift and grant information is updated daily, and market information is updated monthly.
