Leadership Sacramento develops community-minded business and civic leaders of tomorrow. This year-long interactive program provides a behind-the-scenes view of the issues that impact the region’s economy and livelihood and culminates in the completion of a community project for a non-profit. Elected officials and CEOs are among the nearly 1,000 individuals who have participated in this 30-year program.
Inspire Giving seeks to spread the spirit and joy of giving in the Sacramento region by enabling every individual to become a life-long philanthropist through the creation of a perpetual gift for the region. Through a one-time donation, join this dedicated group focused on making a positive and meaningful impact in our community. In 6 years, Inspire Giving has donated $65,000 in grants to 6 non-profits, leveraging an additional $900,000 in volunteer and in-kind services. Truly, a little is enough, if enough people do it.
Thousand Strong’s mission is to work together as a community to boost Sacramento’s economic prosperity by working with local businesses to create a pool of skilled, experienced young talent. The year-long, paid internship program matches young, talented students with businesses and then readies those interns for success on the job.
It was the countless hours and donations from the business men and women of the Sacramento Metro Chamber that made it all possible. Through their dedication and their hard work, we now have a food bank that is a wonderful facility for the entire community of Sacramento and I can’t say thank you enough.
