     Message from our Executive Director

Gilroy just got a little brighter! 

Thank you to our 137 donors who participated in Silicon Valley Gives yesterday, May 5.  We are thrilled to announce donations of over $16,000!

All sixteen of our Non Profit Partners in our community received generous donations as well as did the Gilroy Foundation General Endowment Fund. 

These monies grew our endowment and increases our grant dollars for years to come.


In the spirit of giving,

Donna Pray
