The Sacramento Kids First Coalition is a growing grassroots movement of youth and adults working together to establish a “Sacramento Children’s Fund” to provide dedicated funding for new and expanded services to children, youth, and their families, ages 0 to 24.
For any questions/coments:[email protected]
What we want:
1.) 2.5% of all City of Sacramento annual unrestricted general fund revenue allocated to the Sacramento Children’s Fund.
2.) Sacramento Children’s Fund to equitably distribute funding to children, youth, and their families with the greatest needs.
3.) We want the Sacramento Children’s Fund to fund programs and services, including family-based services
4.) We want the Sacramento Children Fund to fund public agencies and non-profit organizations through an open and transparent competitive bid process.
5. We want the Sacramento Children’s Fund to be overseen by a citizens’ oversight commission comprised of youth (up to 24 years old) and adults who reflect the demographic make-up of Sacramento’s children and youth, and who have professional expertise in youth development, work-based learning, and/or delinquency prevention.
