The Big Day of Giving (BDOG),

Our BDOG theme is "Each One, Reach One!" We're asking each of our donors to encourage at least 1 friend, family member, or co-worker to become a new donor to Sisters of Nia.

Our fundraising goal is $50,000 AND our donor goal is 400 people!

You can help us reach our goals!

A HUGE Thank You to Our Amazing Donors!!

On Friday, April 21st, Sisters of Nia, Inc. are holding a Donor Appreciation Mixer in gratitude of our supporters.

Sisters of Nia, Inc. is honored and proud to offer scholarships to girls in the Sacramento area who are graduating high school, returning to college in the fall, or pursuing a degree or training above a Bachelor’s degree.

Paying for college can be quite a burden to students and families; many students graduate in great debt from student loans. Our goal is that our scholarships provide some sense of financial relief so that our recipients can focus more on their academics.

For information on this year's scholarship opportunity and to apply (applications are due April 20th), click the link below.


Camp Nia​!

Summer Performing Arts Camp

Camp Nia is a low-cost, 2-week, full-day program open to girls ages 11-14 and includes lunch and snacks.

With an Afrocentric foundation, the camp addresses self-esteem, self-confidence, self-control, self-expression, cultural awareness, health & exercise, and proper diet via the performing arts.

Four classes are offered: vocals, dance, drama, and stage design, and the girls select two classes to focus on for the duration of the camp.

Classes are taught by experienced professionals in the craft being taught who are assisted by college students who are also experienced in their craft.

The entire two weeks of Camp Nia are spent preparing for a culminating performance which is open to the community.

Summer 2023 Registration Now Open!
