One amazing day... to make a difference!

May 5, 2015 – to “Give Where You Live”

On Tuesday, May 5, we are participating the Silicon Valley (SV) Gives for the second year.  Last year, the Gilroy Foundation raised over $48,000 in the one day 24-hour of giving.  Out of the 664 nonprofits that participated, we ranked in 40th place for most money raised – what a successful day it was for our community!  We have included our 15 nonprofit partners and our General Endowment Fund as choices for our donors.

No matter the size of your gift, this is your chance to make a difference in our local community! Some may even be matched or doubled by local sponsors!

On Tuesday, May 5, click on the link below which will take you to our Razoo “giving page” to make a donation to your favorite charities.
