LACF’s Gardner Awards dinner celebrates LACF Honorary Founder John W. Gardner’s legacy by highlighting volunteers who exhibit his civic entrepreneurship and service in any of the five areas of his career:

  • Public Service
  • Education
  • Government
  • Science and Technology
  • Arts and Letters

The guidelines for the Gardner Awards are:

  • Any 501(c)(3) nonprofit serving Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, or Mountain View can select an outstanding volunteer to honor at the dinner.
  • Only one honoree per organization.
  • Honoree may be either an adult, a youth, or husband and wife team.
  • The recognition of each volunteer this evening will be spirited and to the point, with the Master of Ceremonies reading a 100 word tribute to each honoree.
  • Honorees and their organization must be present at the dinner to be honored.
