We’re in the business of building community. As a unique, established resource for community philanthropy, PCF serves donors and nonprofit agencies that are turning community resources into community good. We work closely with people who give and their professional advisors to help each donor achieve his or her personal, charitable and financial goals. We help individuals, families and businesses create personal legacies through named funds.
1. Be open to learning and listening, 2. Honor donor intent, 3. Act with integrity, 4. Make courageous decisions, 5. Value our community and respond to its needs, and 6. Lead by example.
Donors are very likely to recommend Placer Community Foundation to a friend or colleague and, when rating their satisfaction of different factors of our work, they gave the highest marks to PCF’s integrity and trustworthiness, the quality of its staff, and PCF’s knowledge of, and experience working with, local nonprofits.
“We have great confidence in the board and staff and feel the donations are responsibly administered for community needs.”
