Thank You for Your Continued Support of HEC!

Your generosity fuels well-being for

over 66,000 low-income residents 

every year

Give from your heart...

Give the gift of health

#GivingTuesday kicks off the giving season by inspiring people to give to the causes close to their heart.

At Health Education Council, we can't think of a better gift than the Gift Of Health.

Your gift to the Health Education Council has the power to bring health and well-being to under-served communities throughout the Sacramento region.

Your donation will bring together residents, community, business and health care leaders to implement programs that don't just put a band-aid on community problems but rather work to solve the underlying cause of poor health and inequity.

Thank you!
