The ASA Sacramento Philanthropy Committee inspires collective greatness that can only be achieved by our members working together, and we harness that greatness for the betterment of our industry and community.
ASA runs a scholarship program, volunteers with Habitat for Humanity, organizes river cleanup crews, and provides assistance to children's homes and veterans halls.
All members are welcomed and encouraged to get involved with these programs. Email the Chapter Executive Director to sign up.
CALDOR FIRE FUND
During the 2021 Construction Industry Gala, items donated by the Federalist Public House, Iron Horse Tavern, Cafeteria 15L, and members of ASA’s Board of Directors were raffled off to raise monies for the Caldor Fire Fund by the El Dorado Community Foundation. The ASA Board matched these efforts which equated for a grand total of $2,500 to be donated.
This cause has assisted over 5,000 families consisting of over 20,000 individuals during the mandatory evacuations and after for families who suffered significant damage to their primary residence. Funds will further be used in the rebuilding of communities devastated by the Caldor Fire over the next 2- 3 years.
Every year, ASA Sacramento gives away thousands of dollars to students to help them through their education.
How many dollars and how many students we get to help is based entirely on the generosity of our members and partners. Keep an eye out for raffles, sponsorships, and events that directly fund the scholarship program.

COPPER FOR KIDS
ASA Sacramento is a proud partner and supporter of Copper for Kids, benefiting Sierra Forever Families, a private, nonprofit agency that facilitates the development of forever families by making the best possible connections between children and families.
IMAGINE COPPER CHANGING A CHILD'S LIFE
The Copper for Kids campaign was established to raise funds to place and support the nearly 3,000 local children in foster care with permanent, loving families by way of foster-adoption. By collecting scrap copper and other recyclable materials from job sites or by making a donation, you and your company will make a lasting impact on the life of a child!
"We know that adoption is a very personal and emotional process for all involved, and our goal is to equip children and parents for success. We aren’t focused on creating the most families; we’re focused on creating the most stable and caring families."
