Events

Los Altos Community Foundation hosts several signature events each year to promote philanthropy, celebrate our donors, and introduce community members to the Foundation.

Our signature events include:

THE GARDNER AWARDS

The Gardner Awards is one of the largest – and most highly anticipated – local celebrations of outstanding volunteerism. It honors dedicated volunteers who have given their time and effort to make a difference at local nonprofits. Typically held in spring, the dinner and celebration regularly attracts community leaders, philanthropists, professionals, elected officials, and nonprofit professionals.
The next Gardner Awards will be held in 2020.

LEGACY CIRCLE LUNCHEON

LACF’s annual Legacy Circle Luncheon recognizes our most forward-thinking and committed donors – those who have included LACF in their estate plans or interested in doing this.  LACF’s Legacy Circle members are the true philanthropic leaders of our community.
