About Our Grantmaking
As a local grantmaker, LAMV-CF primarily aligns its local funding with nonprofits and public entities based in - or directly serving - the communities of Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, and Mountain View. We also work with our donors and donor-advised fund holders on giving opportunities in the greater Bay Area, the state, and beyond.
From July 1, 2021, through June 30, 2022, LAMV-CF distributed over $200,000 to 42 organizations. Grant amounts ranged from $1,000 to $10,000.
Awarded grants supported:
- Youth and education
- Vulnerable populations
- Health and safety programs
- Local arts and culture organizations
- Environmental efforts
- Local community building
In 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, LAMV-CF established several emergency and relief programs for local nonprofits, small businesses, and individuals. Collectively, those funds have distributed more than $1.1M to those in need in our communities.
