The Los Altos Town Crier has a nice article up about the Packard Foundation being named Los Altan of the Year. A very worth choice!
The Los Altos Community Foundation (LACF) receives more than $200,000 annually from the Packard Foundation to donate to nonprofit organizations and programs of its choice.
“(LACF) would be a less established organization without help from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation,” said Roy Lave, who ran LACF as its executive director from its 1991 founding until his retirement last year. “Their grants and consultations have been invaluable in helping LACF begin and grow by developing new programs. For six years, they have funded our community grants program, which has supported most of the established nonprofits in our area and has allowed LACF to incubate much-needed new programs. The Packard Foundation has been a very good citizen supporting our community.”
