According to Executive Director Nancy Dunaway, the LAVA Board of Directors recently established a 501(c)3 donation account with the Los Altos Community Foundation to keep some of the organization’s community events and programs afloat.

Dunaway said the board chose to establish the account – named the Los Altos Village Fund – after several local residents “expressed interest” in donating to help fund some of the organization’s renowned events, including its annual downtown carriage rides during the holidays and its summer movie night program.
