Improving quality of life in our community takes a strong network of nonprofits and community groups.
Through community grant funds, staff expertise, and community connections, we help nonprofits become sustainable, experiment with new ideas, and make a greater impact in the areas they serve. In addition to the $1 million in grants we give each year, we offer free professional development and team trainings for our area nonprofits to better serve our community. The Placer Collaborative Network brings community leaders together as a resource to forge solutions to our most pressing issues.
What We Fund
Grants support a breadth of issues such as hunger, housing, arts, cultural heritage, social justice, animal welfare, and environmental sustainability. All grants are made possible by the contributions of individual donors and charitable funds managed by the Foundation. Grants may include funding reserved for particular charitable interests or unrestricted funds available to invest in changing needs, advance long-term strategic goals, and take on key leadership roles in the region.
The leadership PCF provides for regional nonprofits is a real asset to our organization. And we continue to be blessed by the funding support from their donor funds.
