The Citizens' Benefit Fund was established in 1993 following the sale of the city-owned Roseville Hospital. The proceeds were placed in a trust and a portion of the interest earned each year is made available for grants with the purpose of improving the quality of life for the citizens of Roseville.
The Roseville Employees Annual Charitable Hearts Fund (R.E.A.C.H.) is a community-giving fund created through the generosity of Roseville employees and retirees. These employee-donated funds are dispersed to local charitable organizations that serve youth, seniors and families in the South Placer County region.
After grant applications are reviewed, the Roseville Grants Advisory Commission makes its funding recommendations to the Roseville City Council. The City Council has the final approval on disbursement of each of the grant funds. Funds are awarded on or after July 1, 2015.
For other questions, please call Commission Secretary Kelly Wickline at (916) 746-1350 or Commission Liaison Laura Matteoli at (916) 774-5284.
