Silicon Valley Community Foundation® Makes All Forms Of Philanthropy More Powerful.

We provide visionary community leadership by identifying emerging challenges in our region. We address those challenges through our grantmaking programs, our research and our ability to bring together diverse groups of problem-solvers. We build and energize a community of philanthropists who strengthen the common good.

One of our core strengths is professional investment management of the funds individual and corporate donors entrust to us. Unlike financial management companies, we offer expert guidance on the art and science of giving. We use our expertise to make giving easy and effective, helping donors achieve their philanthropic goals whether local, national or international.

Our leadership is rooted in our strong point of view on social equality as well as our collaborative relationships with the nonprofit groups and institutions advancing the best ideas.

What We Do

  • We simplify giving so donors can focus on their charitable passions.
  • We partner with the most effective organizations to create change.
