Strengthening Local Nonprofits
Placer Community Foundation designed the Nonprofit Initiative to help local nonprofit organizations thrive and grow. Targeted to nonprofits serving residents along the western slope of Placer County, the program helps organizations deliver higher quality, more sustainable, more valuable community services.
