Growing Up Gilroy

You clicked on this link because you or someone you know grew up in Gilroy!

Now, you’ve moved on…or maybe even stayed local….but you hold fond memories of those days “Growing Up Gilroy.”  And you realize that it’s time to give back—to make those memories happen for the next generation of those who are “Growing Up Gilroy,” but who don’t quite have the means to take part in some of those local activities that could make a real difference in their lives—just like it did in yours.

Back then, you may have been involved in tumbling at Wheeler Auditorium, the STAR program at Gavilan College, Parks and Rec classes or Little League at the local fields…..just to name a few.

Here’s how the fund works: those who donate to create this $10,000 fund will have their names listed as Charter Donors on the Gilroy Foundation website. Money then becomes available to fund a competitive grant application from a local youth organization that is requesting money for fee assistance for attendees. And THAT is how you will “pay it forward”—giving another child a chance to make the same memories you did when you were “Growing Up Gilroy.”
