On May 3, we will host an open house at our office in midtown Sacramento. RSVP below to let us know you are coming.
At the open house, you will meet our staff and learn about our Water Leaders program, our teachers program known as Project WET, our maps, our water news, workshops and tours.
The Big Day of Giving, a program of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation’s initiative to grow local philanthropy, is a 24-hour online giving challenge that brings together the region’s nonprofit community to help raise much needed unrestricted funds and shine a spotlight on the work nonprofits do.
What people say about the Foundation’s impact:
“The Water Education Foundation helped ignite my passion for California water. Through attending events and participating in the Water Leaders class, I learned how valuable my experience in California agriculture can be in broader discussions about water.”
- Sara Reid, VP, Lead Relationship Manager – Western Region, CoBank, Foundation Board Member, Water Leaders Class of 2015
“It’s exciting to be a part of an organization that highlights the pressing issues in California’s water for the public to be able to truly engage in a topic that is critical to nearly everything but often doesn’t get the attention it deserves.”
- Rick Aragon, Assistant GM, Rancho California Water District, Foundation Board Member and Water Leaders Class of 2017
Policy and law in regard to water has never been easy, but the efforts and programs of the Water Education Foundation have always made the discussion easier.”
