To date, the Citizens Benefit Fund, American Rescue Plan Act Funds, and REACH have awarded a combined $18.1 million to support non-profits within our community.

The Citizens’ Benefit Fund was established as a trust in 1993 with the proceeds from the sale of the city-owned Roseville Hospital to Sutter Health. A portion of the interest earned each year by the trust is made available for grants with the purpose of improving the quality of life for the citizens of Roseville. The REACH fund was established in 2002 by City of Roseville employees and donations from community supporters and businesses.

Through a competitive process, the City Council-appointed Roseville Grants Advisory Commission reviews grant applications and makes funding recommendations at one of their public commission meetings, which are forwarded to the City Council for final consideration and action.
