The City of Sacramento maintains two special trust funds designated as the Ann Land Memorial Fund and the Bertha Henschel Memorial Fund. The funds include bequests made by the estates of William Land and Bertha Henschel, respectively.

The bequests require the funds be invested by the City Treasurer and the proceeds paid out, under supervision of the City Council, to the benefit of destitute men, women and children of the city. The funds are jointly administered by the Ann Land and Bertha Henschel Memorial Funds Commission. For further information regarding the trust funds, see Chapter 3.48 of the City Charter.
