Providing an increasingly important service to the community, Gifts to Share, Inc. financially manages or “sponsors” projects and programs on behalf of non-exempt organizations and community groups who need to raise funds to achieve their goals. The City of Sacramento must be a partner in the project. Examples of projects include new park playgrounds, neighborhood revitalization projects or youth programs such as “Late Night Sacramento”.
In addition to managing the Gifts to Share Catalogue program, Gifts to Share, Inc. assists city staff and community groups in formulating fundraising plans and securing corporate and individual gifts, sponsorships, and grants. Gifts to Share, Inc. published a Volunteer Project Guide that helps volunteers with project planning, fund-raising, and implementation.
Gifts to Share, Inc. supports training in fundraising, sponsorships, grantwriting and research, and volunteer development. Technical advice, training, and mentoring services can be arranged for volunteers and community groups who want to improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods. Recipients of training support will be asked to share information gained with others and/or propose a way to leverage training experiences.
The new Training Application will be available online shortly. You can request a form from Gudrun Snyder, and fax it to her at (916) 808-7643 or mail the application to her – instructions are provided on the Training Application.
