Congratulations to our first Corporate Community Champion of 2023, KCRA 3 News! KCRA 3 News has been a long-time supporter of the Sacramento community and now a first-time supporter of United Way California Capital Region.

In 2022 they put on their first ever employee giving campaign, raising over $5,000 for local nonprofits!

They also hosted a nonprofit fair every Wednesday in October, inviting eight agencies to their studio to share about their important work in the community. Invited nonprofits included ShepHereos, Sacramento SPCA, Stanford Sierra Youth & Families, and the Sacramento Food Bank.

KCRA’s parent company, Hearst Media, has been a long time supporter of United Way’s across the country. This year, they raised millions of dollars for United Way and local nonprofits!

During the pandemic, Hearst Media donated a million dollars to both United Way Worldwide and the American Red Cross to assist with relief efforts across the country, while also launched a one million dollar matched giving fund to help United Way’s Covid-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund.

Thank you, KCRA, for your tremendous support to help end poverty for families in the California Capital Region!
