A Spirit of Giving

The Sahm Family Foundation was started by Roland Sahm, founder of Elixir Industries, and his wife, Ramona. It is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation devoted to the visual and performing arts, and welfare of children and seniors. The Sahm Family Foundation is led by Roland and Ramona's grandson, Christopher A. Sahm, who is continuing the family’s legacy of philanthropy. To date, the foundation has awarded nearly $10 million in grants to dozens of nonprofit organizations in San Diego and beyond.
