About Us

Sac Kids First is a coalition of individuals and organizations who believe that investing in the healthy development of children and youth is key to building a better Sacramento. We are working together to establish the Sacramento Children’s Fund through placing a measure on the March 2020 ballot.

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.
