REIMAGINE MACK ROAD FOUNDATION

Mack Road ReImagine Foundation Logo

The ReIMAGINE Mack Road Foundation (RMRF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization created in late 2013.

The ReIMAGINE Mack Road Foundation works closely with the Mack Road Partnership (MRP). However, it is a separate entity funded through grants and corporate sponsors. The MRP staff each donates a portion of their time to the Foundation, and local youth are hired on a part-time basis to staff programs and work with their peers to build job readiness and social-emotional skills. This initiative was driven by a Board of Directors made up of forward-thinking leaders from the Valley Hi/Mack Road community. The RMRF’s mission is to:

ReIMAGINE a healthier more vibrant place to live, shop and thrive.

ReSHAPE the quality of life for those who are in need.

ReVITALIZE an under-served and under-resourced part of Sacramento.

ReINVENT the way our community thinks about food, job creation and a better future for our youth and young adults.

Since its launch, the RMRF has been dedicated to community health, food access, business and job growth and creating a sustainable environment for community engagement. In 2013, our first year, the RMRF raised $260,000 and launched a series of programs designed to create community and hope in an area long absent of both. These programs included the renovation of a vacant structure and 3 acre parcel into a community center, Sacramento Summer Night Lights (click here to watch the video), Farmers Market, and the largest community service project ever seen in South Sacramento — ReIMAGINE Mack Road (click here to watch the video).

Our efforts were successful and in the years following the launch, we have been able to fund and grow all of the programs and add more!  Our outdoor community center space, once an empty lot, now houses 2 regulation-sized basketball courts, a playground, an AYSO soccer pitch, an obstacle course, and plenty of outdoor shaded seating.  Our indoor programming continues to grow and we now offer hip-hop dance classes, homework assistance, bicycle racing and maintenance clinics, Soccer for Success, and much more!

But we’re not done yet!  We have big plans and we need your help to see them through! As we move into solidifying the full vision for the RMRF, we seek partners to aid with the activities surrounding our mission to enhance our outcomes.   Whether you want to volunteer, work for us, or make a cash donation, we want to get to know you.
