September is college savings month! Consider establishing a college fund through ACF to support our youth who need your help reaching their education goals.

Setting up a Scholarship Fund for a variety of disciplines can be a way to give back to your community or honor a loved one. Donors can choose to stay involved in an advisory role or name an advisory committee to assist in the selection of recipients. Our staff will handle the necessary paperwork and ensure scholarships are distributed in an equitable manner.

Read all about an ACF success story from our fiscal partner Amador Calaveras Breastfeeding Coalition. We are proud to support this important coalition in our community.

The Amador Calaveras Breastfeeding Coalition was created in the early 2000s to promote, protect and support breastfeeding in our community. Our members include International Board Certified Lactation Consultants, Certified Lactation Educator Counselors, WIC Peer Counselors and others in the community who are interested in the health and wellness of our breastfeeding families. We have developed the Grandmother Tea to provide support to new Grandmother’s-to-be with up-to-date information on changes in newborn care and strengthen the breastfeeding family. We have provided ACBC Lactation Letters: newsletters with current breastfeeding information for medical providers, pharmacists and childcare personnel. We have a presence in many of the community activities, such as Celebrate the Children and World Breastfeeding Week and we created a Nursing Nook at the Amador County Fairgrounds for our breastfeeding families to have a cool, quiet space to care for their children.

Early in our existence we came under the fiscal umbrella of the Amador Community Foundation, as we did not have the ability as a small coalition to administrate and oversee our finances while focusing on our work of serving the community. Our relationship with the Foundation has allowed us to obtain liability insurance for events we participate in at a reasonable cost. Additionally, the Amador Community Foundation has supported us with a grant in the past. We look forward to our continued relationship with the Foundation as we work together to provide for the health and wellness of our community.
