Sponsorship Opportunities

Given the current environment and the extraordinary measures taken to protect us from COVID-19, the Sacramento Tree Foundation has cancelled its signature fundraising event, Tree Hero Awards, this May 27 to ensure the safety of our community.

Unfortunately, the decision to cancel our annual fundraiser comes with the hard loss of our main source of unrestricted funding. 

Instead of sponsoring the event, please consider an organization sponsorship to bolster our operations and underwrite programs that rely on the event revenue generated by Tree Hero Awards.

Despite the turmoil and change happening around us, our neighborhood tree canopy brings a sense of place, peace and stability. Your sponsorship endorses the work we do to protect this resource now and for generations to come.

Your support is critical to our mission. Every gift helps to keep our community programs intact as we hope for an end to this difficult time.

For more information, please contact Alena Brahce at or (916) 974-4315.
