2022 Annual Funding Priorities for the Ann Land and Bertha Henschel Memorial Fund Commission

Purpose

The purpose of the Ann Land and Bertha Henschel Memorial Fund is to assist the destitute men, women, and children of the City of Sacramento. 

History

The Ann Land Memorial Fund was established in 1914 with a bequest of $200,000 to the City by former Mayor William Land as a memorial to his mother, Ann Land. In 1952, Bertha Henschel bequeathed $275,000 to the City to establish a fund in her name. Additional contributions to these funds have been made by Emma Hotfilter, Annie Zacariah, and Warren Reed. Each year, interest earnings on these bequests and contributions may be distributed to non-profit organizations. The Sacramento City Council appoints community members to the Ann Land and Bertha Henschel Memorial Funds Commission to review grant applications and award grants to qualified non-profit organizations.
