We prioritize organizations and projects in Mountain View, Los Altos, and Los Altos Hills with impact in one or more of the following areas:

  • Supporting children, families, and/or senior citizens
  • Enhancing community life
  • Uplifting vulnerable populations
  • Increasing educational opportunities

We are particularly interested in proposals from organizations led by women and/or BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color).


For time-critical, unforeseen opportunities or grant requests of $1,000 or less, contact LACF directly at In these situations, we may be able to respond outside of our regular grantmaking cycles.

If your organization was awarded a grant in Spring 2020 that requires a report and is now applying for a new grant for Spring 2021, please note that we have incorporated the reporting requirements into the current application.
