Sacramento Republic FC launched the Glory Glory Sacramento Fund to celebrate and elevate nonprofits that share the same indomitable spirit as our region. The fund provides individual grants up to $20,000 to Sacramento region nonprofits that support education, health/wellness or youth leadership. In the keeping of our club’s own humble beginnings, applications are encouraged especially for those Sacramento region nonprofits that provide a big impact with minimal resources.
At least ten nonprofits will be selected in the first round of grants totaling approximately $150,000 in total funding. Additional rounds of grants to be considered and announced at a later date.
We say it takes a Republic! The impact of this fund and program will extend beyond solely a monetary donation but also by activating our players, fans and partners to join in our efforts. In addition, each nonprofit selected to receive a grant will also receive:
Glory Glory Sacramento would not be possible without the support, guidance and administration of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation. They will serve as a partner both in the administration of the fund and input towards community needs.
