Project Inspire is a program of activities focused on promoting community through inspiring civic-minded leadership, volunteerism, and philanthropic giving in the Sacramento region. The Metro Chamber will do this by offering organized group volunteer activities, opportunities to contribute to a philanthropic giving circle, celebrating the giving efforts by businesses and highlighting the greatest social needs of the region. It is the goal of these organized activities to encourage participation by businesses and individuals, and to ease the giving of their time, knowledge, talents and donations.
Project Inspire is the result of multiple focus groups which took place over the period of 18 months, engaging more than 300 community leaders from a cross-section of private-sector businesses, nonprofits and civic service organizations. The program offers three categories of activities in order to meet our members’ expectations to promote and inspire community:
- Inspire Leadership - activities will build upon the successful Metro Chamber
programs, Leadership Sacramento, and the Young Professionals Group of the Metro Chamber, Metro EDGE.
- Inspire Volunteerism - activities will promote and highlight volunteerism within the business community.
- Inspire Philanthropy - activities will encourage a culture of philanthropic giving.
Other major components of Project Inspire, which we hope will occur organically, will be to have fun, enable members to learn more about our community, promote the Metro Chamber and create valuable on-going networking opportunities for our members – all while doing good for the Sacramento region.
