Los Altos Community Foundation inspires, leads, and empowers residents and organizations for a stronger community.
With the support of our donors and volunteers, we provide grants, operate leadership and community-building programs, incubate "startup" nonprofits, offer donor-advised funds, and convene groups to address community issues.
