Welcome to Los Altos Mountain View Community Foundation
For the second time in its history, the Foundation has decided to change its name. When the Foundation was established thirty years ago, we were known as Los Altos Tomorrow. The name changed in 1995 to Los Altos Community Foundation because the use of “tomorrow” was not considered sufficiently descriptive of the Foundation’s purpose. For similar reasons, as of this month, we are now Los Altos Mountain View Community Foundation.
Over the past thirty years, the Foundation has actively supported community residents, donors, and nonprofit organizations based in Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, and Mountain View. That overarching focus on our three communities, and especially on residents needing our help, became even more amplified in the months prior to and during the pandemic. It also led the Foundation’s leadership to recognize that the organization’s name was incongruent with its mission. We believe the new name better reflects our work and priorities, is more inclusive, and underscores the equal importance we place on community vibrancy in all three localities.
Thank you for your care for our communities and your interest in Los Altos Mountain View Community Foundation.
Wishing you all well,
P.S. We will be changing our email addresses and website URL soon; we’ll keep you posted.
