Support our Kids with a gift to the Holiday Fund

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund Drive

Donate Now!

Give to the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund and your donation is doubled. You give to non-profit groups that work right here in our community. It's a great way to ensure that your charitable donations are working at home.

Each year the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund raises money to support programs serving families and children in the Palo Alto area. Since the Weekly and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation cover all the administrative costs, every dollar raised goes directly to support community programs through grants to non-profit organizations ranging from $1,000 to $25,000.

And with the generous support of matching grants from location foundations, including the Packard and Hewlett foundations and the Peery and Arrillaga family foundations, your tax-deductible gift will be doubled in size. A donation of $100 turns into $200 with the foundation matching gifts.

Whether as an individual, a business or in honor of someone else, help us reach our goal of $350,000 by making a generous contribution to the Holiday Fund.

With your generosity, we can give a major boost to the programs in our community helping kids and families.

Make a donation today by mailing your check, payable to Silicon Valley Community Foundation, to 2440 W. El Camino Real, Suite 300, Mountain View, CA 94040, or donate by credit card.

Grant application deadline for 2016 grants is Friday, January 8, 2016. Non-profits serving children and families wishing to apply may download our Grant Application Guidelines and Non-Profit Grant Application form.
