LACF 20 Years of Giving Covered by Town Crier

Without the identifying sign out front, the well-kept, historical house at 183 Hillview Ave. could be mistaken for just another quiet neighborhood residence. But the old abode is headquarters for a foundation with a diverse lineup of community-building services – from nurturing and funding non-profit groups, to offering mediation and leadership classes.

The Los Altos Community Foundation (LACF), in its 20th year, manages local residents’ donor-advised funds and disburses most of its annual $200,000 allocation from the Los Altos-based David and Lucile Packard Foundation to non-profit groups.
