Community Assistance Fund
SIMS makes Community Assistance Fund grants to organizations in the Sacramento community, especially those actively serving low income women and children in need. We also support groups working to preserve and enhance the environment through local projects.
Every year we donate thousands of dollars to non-profits that prepare women for jobs, support their education, or provide emergency shelter, job preparation, food, or emergency car repairs.
We fund direct services, not administrative costs. Most awards are $1,000 or less. Applicants must be tax exempt organizations, Section 501(c)(3), schools or government entities.
