More about Marcy Friedman!
Marcy has been a champion in the arts community in the Sacramento region and throughout the state for nearly four decades. As co-chair of the Crocker Art Museum’s largest-ever fundraising campaign, she led a $100 million, 100,000- square-foot transformation of the facility into a world-class attraction befitting California’s state capital. She and her late husband, Morton, donated $10 million to the project. She has also advanced the cultural and philanthropic missions of numerous nonprofit associations as a board member for The California Museum, the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission, the United Way, the Leland Stanford Mansion Foundation, the California Alliance, and the Jewish Federation of the Sacramento Region. She also served as director of the Sacramento Region Community Foundation for 12 years.
Her legacy includes contributions to education that have enhanced opportunities for all ages. She established the Capital Unity Center which promotes racial and ethnic understanding in Sacramento. She founded “The Magic of Reading” program to foster a love of reading in elementary schools and led a literacy initiative that helped Sacramento’s Jefferson Elementary School become a California Distinguished School. Marcy is also a talented painter herself. We look forward to hearing more of her story at She Shares!
