A Community Catalyst for Change
Where donors, business, government and nonprofits come together to cultivate vital and sustainable communities.
LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
Putting community at the center of the community foundation
I was honored to join SVCF as its president and CEO in late December 2018. I began my tenure with a listening tour. I met people living in Silicon Valley, working here, running companies, and serving in our local governments. Some I met struggle to make their rent, and others want to give back to communities where they’ve done well and raised their children. I want all of these voices to come together with the voices of those of us here at the community foundation.
