Sacramento Joins Local Coalition To Raise Funds for the Community During the Pandemic
The City of Sacramento has joined a broad coalition of public, private, nonprofit, labor and philanthropic partners to launch a fundraising effort to help those hurt economically by the COVID-19 pandemic. The campaign, called Donate4Sacramento, leverages and deepens support for families, small businesses and their employees, unhoused residents, and nonprofits.
“Every donation helps, no matter how large or small. With this fund, we can demonstrate our commitment to leave nobody in Sacramento behind. We’re strongest when we stand together,” said Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg.
Donate4Sacramento is a growing public-private coalition of community partners comprising some of the region’s largest foundations, chambers of commerce, and community groups, including the City of Sacramento, Sierra Health Foundation, Sacramento Region Community Foundation, United Way of California Capital Region, Sacramento Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce and Sacramento Steps Forward.
