About Be Great Sacramento

Be Great Sacramento is a non-profit organization that is based in Sacramento California. Be Great Sacramento was created before the COVID-19 Pandemic to provide educational resources and professional/personal opportunities for economically disadvantaged youth. Additionally, as the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have also been serving the Sacramento community and local businesses and organizations during this difficult time. Since then, Be Great Sacramento has been working to expand its operations to support individuals all around the nation and the world. We are dedicated to improving the lives of as many people as we can, and work every day to do so. 

Our Creation

Be Great Sacramento was created by a group of high school students in Sacramento, California.

Seeing the devastation that the COVID-19 pandemic had on my community, I knew I had to do something. I couldn’t just sit there and watch,

Made by three friends from their homes, Be Great Sacramento was very focused on using technology to better society. Created during the COVID-19 Pandemic, Be Great Sacramento had a strong focus on virtual fundraisers and informational displays to spread awareness about key societal topics such as the Black Lives Matter Movement. Additionally, Be Great Sacramento has been active in the field, establishing fundraisers helping local schools and businesses.

Since BGS’s humble origins as a group of 3 friends, they are expanding and developing rapidly, welcoming new members and projects every day.

We hope to provide people with the resources and opportunities that they once did not have.
