Philanthropy in Sacramento Day

Sacramento, CA

Philanthropy California’s annual Philanthropy in Sacramento Day is a special event bringing together our state’s elected officials with leaders of our sector. The day is our opportunity to share the work of philanthropy so that our state’s policymakers can take the best practices developed from your grantmaking and scale it up to improve the lives of millions of Californians. This year, we will also place a special focus on 2020 Census preparation efforts. Our 1.5 days in Sacramento will include opportunities to:

  • Educate legislators and the administration about philanthropy’s role in civil society, the importance of 2020 Census, and best practices on issues that you fund;
  • Develop and cultivate relationships with policymakers; and,
  • Encourage legislators to view foundations as thought partners.
