Local Giving for Local Impact

Los Altos Community Foundation inspires increased local philanthropy for building a thriving community.

When local communities thrive, it’s powerful! Since 1991, Los Altos Community Foundation has provided personalized service and convenient giving options to the residents of Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, and Mountain View to achieve their charitable and financial goals. We help our donors learn more about local needs in order to make their giving as effective as possible – and achieve maximum community impact.

Today, building a strong community – for ALL of us – is more important than ever. In spite of our region’s success, local giving hasn’t kept up with local needs. LACF sees vast opportunities to bring our community together, increase giving, and give hope to those who need it most.

JOIN US! Your donation to LACF helps us provide services and programs that improve and build a thriving community.
