Inspire Giving was established in 2009 as a program of the Metro Chamber Foundation and is held as an endowment fund with the Sacramento Region Community Foundation (SRCF). The goal of the program is to cultivate and celebrate civic-minded leadership, volunteerism and philanthropic giving in the Sacramento region. Inspire Giving’s motto is “a little is enough, if enough people do it.” The program celebrates the collective impact of individual contributions.
This request for Letters of Interest is the eighth solicitation of Inspire Giving and serves as the avenue for the endowment’s eighth award of monetary contributions (up to $10,000), in-kind services and/or volunteer support.

- Builds the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that are needed by individuals in the workforce
