Prosper Us

Here in Placer County, we aspire to be a magnetic place with opportunity, prosperity, and a fulfilling life for all.


That’s why Placer Community Foundation exists. We unite people, ideas, and resources to address community challenges and create opportunities. We do this through gathering knowledge, convening stakeholders, addressing systemic needs, inspiring giving, and marshalling diverse resources for the greatest impact.

Join us to dream big and act boldly to create prosperity for all.

When we contribute collectively for our community's future, we can ensure a great quality of life for years to come. Give to an established fund, or create one of your own. We help you give more, in a simpler way.


We serve as a community catalyst and connector to help address our county’s most pressing issues⁠—including health, education, housing, and racial justice.

Your organization can change the world—and we can help. Build long-term assets, establish a home for reserve funds, and apply for grants to help further your mission. 



Each year our donors fund, create, and impact hundreds of causes and nonprofit organizations. In 2022, donors granted $1.76 million to 178 nonprofits and granted $41,000 in scholarships to area students through funds established at the Community Foundation.

I know that with Placer Community Foundation we made a difference that we could not have made by ourselves. Because our gift to the Community Needs Fund adds to an endowment, our family’s gift will last longer than our lifetime.

By creating a fund—or contributing to an existing one—you can create more impact locally. Let’s discuss how we can help you get started.
