"We are just passing along funds that our community members want to give to support the good work that you (organizations) all do," Weekly Publisher Bill Johnson told representatives of the nonprofits, who gathered for a reception with donors Monday night at the Weekly's headquarters.
This year's major donors included the Hewlett and Packard foundations, which gave $25,000 each; the Peery and Arrillaga foundations, which contributed $10,000 each; and an anonymous family that donated $25,000. Another family has donated $100,000 a year for the last eight years, according to Johnson. More than 300 individual donors contributed to the campaign, which ran from mid-November to the beginning of January.
