|Donate||Building Equitable Communities Fund
As the capital area's community foundation, we specialize in putting philanthropic resources to work. Gifts to the Building Equitable Communities Fund help us tackle pressing community challenges to make the Sacramento region a more vibrant, more equitable home for all.
|Donate||Big Day of Giving Fund
A program of our philanthropy initiative, Big Day of Giving has been a game-changer for local philanthropy, bringing our region together to raise millions of dollars in unrestricted funds since 2013. Gifts to the Big Day of Giving Fund enable this critical programming, strengthening the Sacramento region's nonprofit sector.
|Donate||Healthy Food Economy Fund
We strive to foster a healthier community and healthier lives—for all—by fostering collaborative partnerships that improve access to fresh, affordable produce in underserved communities, grow the consumption of healthy foods through access to nutrition education, and increase the amount of locally grown food distributed within the region's food system. Gifts to the Healthy Food Economy Fund make this work possible.
|Donate||Transforming the Creative Economy Fund
We invest in the Sacramento region's creative community and aim to ensure equitable access to the arts, encourage collaboration between traditional and emerging arts groups, and build arts organizations' capacities to achieve organizational stability. Further, we use gifts to this fund to grow future audiences—and artists—by supporting early arts exposure in schools through local arts organizations.
|Donate||Capital Area Promise Scholars Endowment
Our education initiative's major program, Capital Area Promise Scholars, expands equitable access to higher education for the young people in our community who face the greatest systemic barriers to earning college degrees. Gifts to the Capital Area Promise Scholars Endowment support the strategic, needs-based, renewable scholarships we offer area students, helping them achieve their educational dreams.
|Donate||Sacramento Region Disaster Relief Fund
When emergencies strike, we are equipped to respond. Paired with our community knowledge and lasting relationships with the organizations that make an impact in the capital region, we quickly activate gifts to the Sacramento Region Disaster Relief Fund to help during times of crisis—so our community can have a successful recovery.
