In 2003, the Institute’s board of directors created an endowment fund. The Institute’s Endowment is invested with the Sacramento Region Community Foundation. Your support of the Institute for Local Government is of great value, enabling us to continue providing valuable resources to promote good government at the local level.
Donations can be gifts of cash or appreciated property or securities. Donations may be given in memory or honor of public servants. Public officials leaving office may also donate surplus campaign funds. The Institute is a 501(c)(3) organization, which means gifts may involve tax advantages.
The Institute is extraordinarily grateful to those who have contributed to its endowment:
Patrick S. Blacklock
