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.
Magnify your gift by choosing a re-occurring donation
When you show your support by choosing the 're-occurring donation' option on the donation form, you provide a consistent funding-base for HEC's programs in low-income neighborhoods.
