There are many reasons why people choose the Amador Community Foundation to achieve their financial and charitable goals.

 

Personalized service

The foundation provides a safe, easy way for people and businesses to make a difference and assures that their contributions will do good work now and in years to come. Donors may give to an existing fund, establish a new fund specifically for their individual charitable goals and interests, or may give to the Foundation’s unrestricted fund. The foundation can simplify the giving process, making it quicker and less costly for donors than handling the details themselves or setting up a private foundation. We are committed to providing you with secure, flexible, and convenient services.

These grants are competitive and awarded for worthy projects that help improve the quality of life in Amador County, whether for Agriculture, Community Development, Disaster & Recovery, Education, Health & Wellness, Arts, Culture, Environment, Animal Welfare, Historical Preservation, Veterans Services, Native Philanthropy and Scholarships. We also will ensure that grants from your fund are distributed efficiently.
