Metro EDGE Will Partner with Inspire Giving in 2017

Learn more about Inspire Giving at a Celebration on December 8

Part of what makes Metro EDGE an impactful organization is our members’ commitment to philanthropic engagement. In 2017, EDGE will take their “Giving” to a whole new level by partnering with the Metro Chamber Foundation’s Inspire Giving program, a charitable endowment that seeks to support and grow the spirit of giving by enabling every individual to become a life-long philanthropist through the creation of an annual gift.

In 2017, Metro EDGE will support Inspire Giving through volunteer opportunities with Inspire Giving’s chosen grant recipient and by fundraising for the endowment that directly supports Inspire Giving’s commitment to making a social impact in the Sacramento region. Our goal in 2017 is to raise funds for Inspire Giving memberships for EDGErs, as well as encouraging EDGErs to join directly — allowing our philanthropic impact to grow exponentially!

More about Inspire Giving

As a member of the Inspire Giving Fund, individuals have the opportunity to combine their one-time donation with others to create an endowment. Each year, all individuals who have invested in Inspire Giving collaboratively select, via a voting process, how the endowment’s income will be distributed to a charitable organization within the Sacramento region. An awardee is announced during the Metro Chamber’s Annual Dinner in January. In addition to a monetary investment, members may also volunteer their time and resources in aid of the chosen project each year. In five years, members have donated over $900,000 to local non-profits through cash and in-kind donation
