Corporate / Business Donations
The Sacramento Community Emergency Response Team is an all-volunteer organization whose mission is to educate citizens of the Sacramento Region in disaster preparedness and to assist California’s first responders in the event of a large-scale emergency.
Historically, Sacramento CERT funding came from federal and regional grants obtained by the Sacramento Fire Department and the Sacramento Regional Citizens Corps Council on our behalf. Federal funding for CERT has stopped, forcing programs to find other sources to support operational budgets.
Although our dedicated volunteers donate thousands of hours each year for the benefit of the Sacramento Region, effectively carrying out our mission still requires equipment and supplies.
In 2013 the Sacramento Fire Department established the Sacramento Fire Department and Community Foundation (SFDCF), a 501(c)(3) organization. In 2016 SFDCF adopted a resolution to establish Sacramento CERT as the sole beneficiary of funds raised.
If you own a business or make the decision to donate for your corporation, please consider making that donation to Sacramento Fire Department and Community Foundation dedicated to Sacramento CERT.
Both monetary donations or donations of equipment and supplies would be very deeply appreciated!
