Sacramento AFN is an emerging regional chapter that has begun to collaborate with grantmakers committed to promoting equitable wealth building and economic mobility. The chapter engages with private, public, corporate, and community foundations, along with public-sector funders and financial institutions, dedicated to securing economic stability for the region and its surroundings.
Sacramento AFN aims to facilitate connections among funders, nonprofits, and the public and private sectors. Through ongoing collaboration, the chapter will share insights on promising programs and effective strategies, improve grantmaking practices, and collectively increase asset-building investments.

How We Work
Inform: Highlight promising practices, key issues, and innovations in the field through funder-only dialogues as well as other convenings. Members provide an insightful regional voice to inform national conversations.
Connect: Members learn from each other and from other organizations as they seek solutions to local challenges related to workforce development, small business development, and housing affordability.
Influence : Engage key stakeholders to grow their knowledge and support. This includes efforts to raise the visibility of asset-building within the broader community of foundations, public-sector funders, and financial institutions.
Build: We seek to build the number of grantmakers and resources focused on strategies and investments for low and moderate income people to build and protect assets increasing economic opportunities and prosperity. AFN staff spend time one-on-one with local grantmakers to learn, share, encourage participation, align strategies, and increase ROI.
