Community Donor Spotlight: The Evans Family

"Due to the many challenges facing our community in 2020, we decided to prioritize and increase our local giving in Los Altos and Mountain View. We could see how LACF's coordinated efforts and expertise working with city leadership and other local foundations provided immediate support to those in need. LACF is a knowledgeable, effective, and caring resource for philanthropic giving. We are glad to see our donation make a strong impact in the community we call home!"
