Sacramento Region Community Foundation

From 2013 to 2017 we were involved in the Sacramento region’s push to expand philanthropy and raise the bar for area non-profits, in partnership with the Sacramento Region Community Foundation.

From interviewing arts leaders as part of the KVIE Arts Showcase, to providing direct hands-on training to NPO leaders, we have been part of a large team that is focused on showing our region the importance of support mission-based organizations.

“Heath was instrumental in the execution and success of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation’s Big Day of Giving Bootcamps for the last 3 years. A strong presenter with an eye to detail, Heath commanded the room with great skill.
Our basics course, which Heath presented helped nonprofits with subjects such as donor engagement, traditional and digital marketing, board development, fundraising tactics, and much more. During the 2016 Big Day of Giving when the website went down for most of the day, Heath jumped right in to help us. His ability to clearly and effectively communicate live updates to the nonprofits was invaluable and we heard many nonprofit staff members talk about how Heath was able to calm their fears during a very stressful day. On a personal note, as the organizer for the event, I valued Heath’s contributions to the event as a thought partner, volunteer, and advocate for the campaign.”
