The "Change for Kids" program offers you an easy way to assist in raising funds for more free or reduced-fee after-school programs. City of Santa Rosa Utility customers, including businesses, are encouraged to "round up" their monthly utility bill (water and sewer) payment to the nearest dollar with the extra "change" going into an after school fund for kids in areas of Santa Rosa where services are most needed.

The Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery is a historical landmark that has been lovingly restored, preserved, and maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers. While the Recreation and Parks Department provides specialized assistance and limited funding for maintenance, the continuing care of this historical gem relies on tax-free donations and funds raised by tours, programs, and special events. Individuals can join the "Friends of the Rural Cemetery" at different membership levels, or make one-time contributions to the Rural Cemetery Restoration Fund. To learn more, click here. Questions?
