BUILDING A STRONGER COMMUNITY
Placer Community Foundation is a place for individuals, families, businesses and organizations to invest in our community.
Through opening a fund—or joining your friends and neighbors in giving to a community fund—you can get more impact out of every dollar. We make giving simple, convenient, and tax-advantageous, so that you can give more to the causes you care about and create a lasting legacy.

Intentions honored forever
We know our donors personally and are structured to ensure your intentions are fulfilled long after your heirs/executors are gone. For example, if you direct funds to a particular youth organization that ceases to exist, we’ll find one of similar mission to take its place.
Maximum impact on the community
We’re your connector and guide to the needs and nonprofits in our community. We stay on top of the issues, and we’re a key voice in important community conversations. We help you make sure that your gifts are used for maximum impact in the areas that need them most.
Love for this community is at the heart of my success. There is no better way to show that love than by giving back.
