GivingTuesday Los Altos

Everyone has a desire to make a difference in the world. 

One fun way to contribute is through #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.

On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose:  to celebrate generosity and to give.

A way to do that is through “community philanthropy”, the giving of donations to strengthen our local community and address its needs.

LACF is uniquely positioned to direct contributions to the most pressing needs in our community.

Origins of WOMEN SV

WomenSV logo FINAL 2 (1)WOMEN SV has another great write up in the Town Crier.

Patrick, who founded her organization in 2012 with a grant from the Los Altos Community Foundation, distinctly recalled the difficulty some students had paying attention in her class one day.

“Some of them were thinking about what was going on at home – the trauma and the chaos they were living in on a day-to-day business,” said Patrick, whose organization offers a range of support services for abused women in Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Mountain View, Palo Alto and other surrounding cities. “How can you pay attention when you’re thinking about how dad treats mom, or vice versa?”
