Giving Societies

Los Altos Community Foundation offers four giving societies that recognize long-term donor commitment to our community.

Cumulative Donation Societies

Many donors have shown continuous commitment to Los Altos Community Foundation and its mission since it was formed in 1991. Their sustained giving is recognized in the following ways:

  • Director’s Society. Cumulative giving of at least $15,000
  • Community Society. Cumulative giving of at least $50,000
  • John Gardner Society. Cumulative giving of at least $100,000
  • Legacy Circle – Make a gift for future generations

The Legacy Circle recognizes the extraordinary commitment of people who include Los Altos Community Foundation in their estate plans. The generous, far-reaching support provided by members of the Society allows LACF to further build its positive influence on our community long into the future.

Members of the Director’s, Community, John Gardner, and Legacy Circle receive recognition in our Annual Report (if you wish) and an invitation to an exclusive event each year. In addition, they enjoy all the benefits offered to those in the Sustainers’ Circle and members. This special recognition acknowledges the long-term impact of their support for the Los Altos Community Foundation.
