Elfrena Foord Builds Bridges to Bright Futures with GED Scholarship

Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) is proud to join forces with an army of donors from a variety of backgrounds, beliefs and circumstances to offer hope and make service to the community possible. 


Elfrena Foord became a personal supporter of SFBFS in 2001. She is passionate about GED preparation and created a scholarship to help clients pay for their GED testing fees, a significant barrier for many trying to improve their employment situation. Hundreds of adults who would not otherwise be able to pursue their GED received scholarships thanks to her leadership.

In addition to providing the GED scholarship, Elfrena Foord also serves as the Advisor for Arata Brothers Trust, serves on the United Way Foundation board, Rotary Club of Sacramento Foundation board and the Philanthropic Advisors Forum (PAF) steering committee at the Sacramento Region Community Foundation since inception in 2013. She strongly believes it is everyone’s responsibility to help others and is an outstanding role mode in our community.

We applaud Elfrena’s contributions in our community and efforts to educate and empower those in need.
