SAR has a significant history of supporting charities related to shelter and a thriving community. Your donation to the Foundation continues this important work.

What we are about:

  • Helping provide shelter through homeownership, affordable housing, housing rehabilitation, and combating homelessness
  • Providing a wide range of assistance to under–served families, low–income communities, and at–risk youth
  • Developing and preserving livable and sustainable communities

SAR volunteers participate in the spring and fall work days for Rebuilding Together, prepare and serve lunch at Loaves and Fishes, serve coffee and breakfast at the Wellspring Women’s Center, clean up the American River Parkway and much more. Foundation volunteers carefully research the charities they support, to determine they are well-run and fit with our priorities.
SAR has regularly been recognized by the Sacramento Business Journal for its charitable efforts, consistently ranking around #12 on the annual corporate philanthropy list.
