Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

Support the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 26 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has raised and given away more than $7 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 (SVCF) absorb Holiday Fund administrative costs so all money raised, minus PayPal processing fees, is distributed. Your generosity is much appreciated.

SVCF is a catalyst for positive change, working to harness our region's innovative spirit to address local challenges and build strong, vibrant communities in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. The foundation builds community connections and supports the work of local nonprofit organizations, through the generosity of our individual and corporate donors.

Your contribution is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Thank you for your support!
