Our Story

Housed in the backyard of California’s Capital, the Sacramento Latino Giving Circle is an intergenerational, diverse community who intimately know the potential and power of civic action. Launched in 2017 this group knows the responsibility they hold leading from the state’s capital and is constantly on the hunt for how to collaborate with their community partners. They fund organizations working in Sacramento, Yolo, and Placer counties.

About the Latino Giving Circle Network

The Latino Giving Circle Network is the largest network of Latinx philanthropists in the country. From Baby Boomers to Millennials, CEOs to emerging professionals, immigrants to US-born, Latinos and non-Latinos, we are part of a united movement inspired by the power of giving and civic engagement. The funding from these Giving Circles supports grassroots Latinx-led nonprofits, working on the frontlines with Latinx youth and families. These emerging community-rooted organizations are often overlooked by traditional philanthropy. We exist to change that. Learn more about the Network here.
