Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation (SACHCCF), dba Sacramento Business Services Center, provides business education, technical assistance and access to capital opportunities. Through the SACHCCF, the economic development and growth of Latino businesses is championed. 

SACHCCF is committed to providing access to capital for small and minority-owned businesses. Through Acceso Sacramento, small businesses are able to apply for boost grants from $1000-$5000 to assist them in covering expenses and/or obtaining upgrades to their business. These grants have been the needed "boost" to keep a business open, growing, and sustainable. Many small businesses are anchors in our neighborhoods and diverse corridors. They are your friends, neighbors, and community. Your donations help fuel Acceso Sacramento and give a boost to small business. 

At the SACHCCF, we realize that supporting small businesses means we are also supporting families. Our Mayor Joe Serna, Jr. Leadership and El Futuro Scholarship programs provides funding for Latino/a graduating high school seniors, community college students, and graduate students across our six-county region. Through these programs, we are investing in our future workforce. 

For our workforce, we have a professional development scholarship program to assist those that have been accepted into leadership programs. Participants in these programs find advancement opportunities that lead to career growth.
