About Us

Jain Center of Greater Sacramento (JCGS) has been established for more than 20 years. It is a unique membership-run, non-profit organization (Tax id# 9800905) incorporating the innovative and progressive life styles of Jain families in the Sacramento Valley. Our goal is to spread Jain philosophy, values and rituals, thereby passing-on the faith and understanding to our next generation. We are located at 8360 Sheldon Road, Elk Grove, CA 95624.




It’s a great honor and pleasure to serve the Sangh as the President.

On this auspicious occasion of Mahavir Jayanti, the entire Executive Committee and I, which are represented by all different traditions, feel honored and fortunate to serve our vibrant community. Our Executive Committee is comprised of a dynamic team of proven leaders, and all are committed to serve Jain community over the years. We request support from all of you to help and guide us, so we can carry on the tradition set by our founding members and past committees to take JCGS to new heights. This new administration’s primary focus is to get each and every member involved in the activities of our temple.

I would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our past Presidents, Executive Committees, all benefactors, Senior Citizens, BhojanShala groups, and above all our sangh and volunteers for bringing great new ideas with better planning and hard work. If anyone has any expertise in a particular field or skill which could help our Sangh, we would love to hear from you.

Your center runs on member’s contributions and donations. I request you to please continue with your generosity. We need more help as we begin to commence the construction of our future temple, our dream project. Once again, thank you very much for your continued support, understanding, and help!

In the planning and executing of the events, if for some reason we knowingly or unknowingly hurt you by thoughts, action or speech, kindly let the Executive Committee know. Michammi Dukkadam as it would not have been our intention.
