About Us

Sac Kids First is the city’s largest grassroots coalition. We are individuals and organizations who believe that investing in the healthy development of children and youth is key to building a better Sacramento.

Our diverse coalition includes youth leaders, nonprofits, educators, law enforcement officials, and business leaders who have come together in a united effort to create stable long-term investments in child and youth development.

Our Values

  • We believe that investing in the healthy development of children and youth is key to building a better Sacramento.
  • We believe young people must be central actors in the creation, development, implementation, and evaluation of a Sacramento Children’s Fund.
  • We believe reducing life outcome disparities among children and youth based on race, economic, and social status must be the number one priority of a Sacramento Children’s Fund.
  • We believe the operation of a Sacramento Children’s Fund must be transparent and accountable to the general public.
