The VFW Riders Association earns about $4,000 from All Charities Raffle ticket sales and puts it toward helping veterans, including helping with hospital bills and memorials. This is one fundraiser we do yearly.
After living in West Sacramento for over 25 years and being blessed with a successful career in urban planning and development, I wanted to invest in West Sacramento’s development in other ways. The West Sacramento Community Foundation’s approach to enhancing the lives of our residents by helping other community organizations grow is truly a “foundation” I wanted to help “build”.
The West Sac Community Foundation fills the gaps with our local nonprofits. The Foundation helps with the small, but immediate, needs--like batting helmets for Little League or band instruments for the high school. I'm proud to be a supporter of this great organization.

Bridgeway Play is a grassroots group of parents in the Bridgeway neighborhoods of West Sacramento. We raise funds to improve the play opportunities for all kids in West Sacramento. In 2016, we will complete our first project, a new playground at Bridgeway Lakes Community Park, in partnership with the City of West Sacramento.
Bridgeway Play is a recipient of a grant from the West Sacramento Community Foundation and we have partnered with the Foundation to sell raffle tickets as part of the All Charities Raffle.
Bridgeway Play and the West Sacramento Community Foundation are truly natural partners. Bridgeway Play's ground up, community-initiated efforts are exactly the types of activities the Foundation seeks to support. This is why the grant awarded to Bridgeway Play was so important. It put meaning behind the money and encouraged Bridgeway Play to be more ambitious and establish more community-wide goals. This is not always the case in the foundation world. Many times foundations don't have a keen eye for identifying community initiatives bubbling up organically in neighborhoods. Being aware of what is taking place at the grassroots level in order to get involved early and help ensure the success of fledgling organizations is unique strength of the Foundation .
