On May 5th, we are asking you to participate in a huge and historic event for our region, the BIG Day of Giving, where, over a 24 hour period from midnight to midnight, Sacramento Law Foundation will join with 500 other nonprofits to raise $5 million, engage 25,000 donors, and make our region #1 as the most generous community in the country on this national day of giving!
A many of you know the Sacramento Law Foundation (SLF) was originally established in 1986 as the Sacramento County Bar Foundation. In 2005, the organization changed its corporate name to Sacramento Law Foundation. While separate from and independent of the Sacramento County Bar Association (SCBA), the SLF maintains an affiliation with the SCBA as their charitable arm.
SLF has a long history of providing grants to organizations in the Sacramento, California region that improve the administration of justice, enhance public confidence in the legal profession, cultivate understanding of the respect of the rule of law, and support law-related public services. These grants are awarded by the SLF Board of Directors on an annual basis to organizations that provide these services and meet criteria established by SLF’s Board of Directors. The SLF’s grants program is funded by donations from individuals and local businesses (primarily law firms), as well as by income SLF raises from special events and fundraisers. The SLF has operated its grant program since the organization’s inception.
