Dedicated to Doing the Most Good

The Sacramento Salvation Army Advisory Board provides input, support, and key influence with external constituencies to further the goals and objectives of The Salvation Army in pursuit of its mission. The advisory board is not a governing board of directors and is, therefore, not the ultimate authority on decision-making. Board members are community-minded and provide vital support and influence as Army leadership engages strategic opportunities and challenges, seeks to make wise decisions, and pursues the resources needed to carry out the Army’s mission in the Sacramento community.
