Building Equitable Communities

We invite you to help us make a difference by donating to the Foundation’s Building Equitable Communities Fund (formerly known as Community Impact Fund). Your support will allow us to continue bringing community groups together in the spirit of partnership to solve problems; it will allow us to focus our work where both the needs and the opportunities for success are the greatest throughout the communities we serve in El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties.

At the Foundation, we define impact as the effect our work has on the social fabric of the community and the well-being of its individuals. Given the current reality in which community needs are growing while support has been shrinking, we have found that we can have greater impact through joining together.


We maximize our impact in the Sacramento region by determining areas of need where we can have a greater effect by pooling resources, bringing the right partners together, and streamlining efforts to break down barriers and get things moving. This is what community foundations are best at — using limited resources and collaborative partnerships as a springboard to great accomplishments.


If you believe as we do that collaboration is the way to solve community problems, please take a moment to learn about our Strategic Initiatives, areas where we can play a significant leadership role, make catalytic investments, and partner with key stakeholders to achieve meaningful change. From creating a more generous region, to fostering a thriving cultural community, to expanding equitable access to higher education, to creating a healthy, accessible food system for all, our Strategic Initiatives promote pivotal change in our Sacramento region communities.

We cannot transform our region without your generosity and support. By making a donation to the Building Equitable Communities Fund, you ensure our collective work can continue.
