Big Day of Giving 2019 – Open House
Stop by our midtown Sacramento office to meet the staff, learn about programs
The Water Education Foundation is hosting an open house on May 2 as part of the Big Day of Giving campaign.
Come to our midtown Sacramento office between 4:30 p.m.- 6:30 p.m. and enjoy refreshments and appetizers while meeting our staff. You can learn about our Water Leaders program, our teachers program known as Project WET, our water maps, our water news, workshops and tours.
Big Day of Giving is an initiative of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation to grow philanthropy. It 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.
If interested in supporting water education across California and the Southwest, you can click here to start your own fundraising campaign by challenging friends and colleagues to support the Foundation, or you can schedule your tax-deductible donation starting April 15.
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.”
- Chris Scheuring, Managing Counsel, Natural Resources & Environmental Dept., California Farm Bureau Federation, Water Leaders Class of 2004
The Water Education Foundation has been an important constant in my career in water. The programs and publications of the Foundation provide a wealth of information on water topics and challenges facing Californians. As a board member, I had the pleasure of working with the staff to ensure the exceptional programs adapt to new information technologies and to meet the continually evolving needs of water managers and users in California and the West.
-Maurice Hall, Associate VP, Ecosystems – Water, Environmental Defense Fund, Water Leaders Class of 2001
