Inspire Giving

A little is enough, if enough people do it

Established in 2009, Inspire Giving is an endowment fund administered by the Sacramento Region Community Foundation. Individuals contribute to Inspire Giving to be able to collectively give a donation larger than they could give on their own. 

Every year Inspire Giving provides a $10,000 grant to help fund a specific project for a local nonprofit.

Through our leadership team, donors, and partnerships, Inspire Giving also provides in-kind services, donations, and support depending on the project needs. In nine years, Inspire Giving has supported ten nonprofits through $105,000 in grants and over $1,000,000 in in-kind support and services.

The Inspire Giving grant selection process is unique. Each year, all Founding and Legacy Members, along with individuals who have donated a minimum of $25 to Inspire Giving during the previous calendar year collaboratively select, via a voting process, how the endowment’s income will be distributed to a charitable organization within the Sacramento region.
