Without the support of Palo Alto residents and the neighboring cities and towns in our district, the Foothill-De Anza Proposition 39 bond would not have been possible. On behalf of our students and our board of trustees, faculty, staff, and administrators, let me take a moment to thank the community for your support and to again express our commitment to modernize Foothill and De Anza colleges so current and future generations of students will be able to enjoy a first-class undergraduate education and lifelong learning for many years to come. Thank you again!

Mountain View should sue Katz and get the money returned that he stole from the district with interest.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
