Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

Many thanks for your support of the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 26 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has raised and given away more than $6 million to local nonprofit organizations with programs serving children and families. With the support of matching grants from the Packard and Hewlett foundations and other generous donors, the Holiday Fund leverages hundreds of small donations into grants to local agencies that apply for funding each year. The Palo Alto Weekly and Silicon Valley Community Foundation absorb all the costs of the Holiday Fund, so 100% of the money raised will be distributed with no administrative expenses deducted.

Silicon Valley Community Foundation is a catalyst and leader for innovative solutions to our region's most challenging problems. Serving all of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, the community foundation has more than $7 billion in assets under management and over 1,650 philanthropic funds. Through the generosity of our individual and corporate donors, we are the largest funder of Bay Area nonprofit organizations and the largest international grantmaker among community foundations.

Your contribution is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
