Board of Directors


Los Altos Community Foundation’s Board of Directors is made up of community leaders from Los Altos, Los Altos Hills and Mountain View. They serve as our public ambassadors and help steward the mission, direction, and policies of LACF. Directors approve all grants made by LACF and ensure that the organization meets all laws and legal requirements.


Do you want to be part of a dynamic group of local leaders who want to make a difference in our community? LACF is actively looking for candidates that are passionate about our community to serve on our Foundation board. Candidates should live in Los Altos, Los Altos Hills or Mountain View and commit to a three-year term.
