Support Sacramento area residents in their efforts to create vibrant, equitable, healthy and diverse communities.
Alchemy, the medieval science known for seeking to transmute, or transform base metals into gold, appealed to us because of Sacramento’s history as a Gold Rush town and the idea of transformation. We saw an opportunity in Sacramento’s rapid growth and active community to help nurture and transform neighborhoods into the community’s vision. Our logo is a combination of the German alchemy symbol for gold and an Egyptian symbol for “village” or community.
Vibrant: Neighborhoods are full of creative residents with the best ideas for improving their communities – we are here to help develop and educate residents as a way to strengthen communities
Equitable: Social justice in community development means that all residents should contribute to and benefit from economic and physical development in their neighborhoods – authority needs to be held accountable
Diverse: Community health is strengthened by having residents of diverse ethnicity, economic level, cultural background, age and interest
Urban Sacramento: The health and sustainability of the larger community depends on the health of urban centers, particularly redevelopment areas, and includes physical, economic and social development
