Simple answer: Building a stronger, more generous community. At the Sacramento Region Community Foundation, we care about fostering the giving spirit in El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo counties, so we designed this website—GivingEdge—to make it easy to discover local nonprofits. And we coordinate the region's annual giving day—Big Day of Giving—to celebrate the important work they do and the supporters who make it possible!
The pace of change in our community is swift. To ensure that everyone who lives, works, and plays in the Sacramento region has the opportunity to flourish, our social sector must be robust—and robustly supported. That's where GivingEdge and Big Day of Giving come in. We invite you to learn more about the origins and impacts of these philanthropic tools, and the team that runs them, below.
Connecting local people with local causes.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of more than 50,000 donors, Big Day of Giving has helped the nonprofits listed on GivingEdge raise $78 million since 2013. In many ways, these programs have been game-changers for philanthropy in our region. They strengthen our nonprofit sector through annual trainings and collaborative opportunities and — importantly — bring new people to charitable giving, connecting good people and good causes to enrich civic life for all.
Inspiring philanthropy in the Sacramento region since 1983.
Though Big Day of Giving and GivingEdge are two of our most visible programs, the Sacramento Region Community Foundation makes an impact in the capital area through its broad array of grantmaking programs and philanthropic services. To learn more about how the Foundation enables those with philanthropic interests to easily and effectively support the issues they care about — immediately or through their will — please visit its website.
