The PECG River City Section Philanthropy Committee is dedicated to supporting the education, endeavors, and wellbeing of our PECG members and community. As a fundamental part of PECG’s values, the Committee engages in offering academic scholarships, sponsoring STEM programs, and volunteering for local organizations.
River City Section Scholarships
The River City Section is awarding four $500 scholarships this year. Two scholarships are for our members or their dependents who are currently enrolled in a college or university in a PECG-related field of study. The other two scholarships are for community individuals who are currently enrolled in a college or university in a PECG-related field of study. The applications for the scholarships are below:
River City Section Philanthropy Committee Members formed an online panel to discuss PECG careers with the Career Technical Education Foundation (CTE). CTE aims to provide students with a pathway to post-secondary education and careers by offering career technical education programs in Sonoma County. River City Members had an opportunity to speak to these students about our impactful technical STEM careers in California government and the importance of STEM careers in government.

Past events include:
American River Clean-Up

The Philanthropy Committee generally meets once a month to plan upcoming philanthropic opportunities, and more frequently when an event approaches. If you are interested in learning more about the Philanthropy Committee, or have suggestions for events, please contact the Karmina Padgett at
