Community Support

The Sacramento Rainbow Chamber of Commerce was founded at a time when it wasn’t as easy to be out and proud as it is today. Many LGBT business owners and professionals were forced to remain closeted or face discrimination or loss of business due to their sexual orientation. One of the Chamber’s founding principles is to support diversity, inclusion and equality for all people. Whether you are a business owner or not, LGBT or straight, here are six ways you can support those values.

Community Involvement

At the Sacramento Rainbow Chamber of Commerce, we know that a healthy, thriving community is the basis of a healthy, thriving business environment, and the Chamber supports local non-profit organizations in numerous ways. Our non-profit Rainbow Chamber Foundation, funded entirely by private donations and sponsors, provides academic scholarships to LGBTQ and allied students of all ages, in addition to supporting youth programs and services through Gender Health Center, Sacramento LGBT Community Center and other organizations. On first Thursdays, the Chamber produces Drag Queen Bingo, with proceeds benefiting a different local non-profit each month. The Chamber provides leadership and fundraising support for other community projects and causes, such as the Lavender Heights Rainbow Crosswalks, 2008 No On 8 Campaign, and our partnerships with Downtown Partnership, Sacramento Kings and other diversity chambers. And we help our members grow and connect with the community, providing them free online job postings and Hot Deal offers.
