Throughout our history, we have catalyzed community impact through our partnerships with donors, nonprofit organizations, and local government. Community Needs funds support Placer County at the critical juncture between the challenges of the past and opportunities of the future, giving us the resources we need to make key investments.
We envision a Placer County in which the arts engage all types of people, build community and provide diverse cultural experiences. With support from the James Irvine Foundation and from donor funds managed by the Placer Community Foundation, grants are supporting a variety of local arts and culture programming.
Many people come to a point in their lives where they feel inclined to give back. What motivates you? Each individual, family, or organization we work with has unique charitable interests and unique financial circumstances. We help you make the most of both, so you receive the greatest return on your community investment.
We maximize donor funds to sustain and grow our county’s nonprofit organizations so they, in turn, can better serve our community’s growing needs. We constantly evaluate and monitor our grant programs to make sure they are relevant and successful, so that others can follow in the philanthropic footsteps of those who came before them.
When a client’s financial planning includes questions or desires on philanthropy, professional advisors can find a wealth of helpful information and resources at the Placer Community Foundation. We offer a variety of giving options and tools, first-hand knowledge of community needs and the highest level of tax benefits available for charitable giving.
Placer Community Foundation grows local giving to create sustainable and vibrant communities for the nearly 300,000 residents of Placer County. Whether you want to support a specific cause, create your own charitable fund, establish a scholarship, apply for a grant or learn about local giving, we can help. Learn More . . .
