MESSAGE FROM OUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
As a community foundation, Gilroy Foundation stands with the people of San Jose on May 26, 2021. The Gilroy Strong Resiliency Center is open. 408-209-8356
This year, there was no opportunity to gather with donors and grant recipients as we do each year at our Annual Meeting and Charitable Grants Presentation, which happens in late April. We also had no opportunity to present scholarship certificates to graduating seniors at senior award ceremonies.
However, our work went on, albeit remotely and via mail and email announcements. We were able to award a total of $836,323 in grants and scholarships.
Our Competitive Grant Cycle gave 22 local programs a total of $87,230. Additional grants came from our Donor-Advised Funds and Designated Funds.
Our scholarship cycle is now complete, having awarded 79 scholarships totaling $509,0000. Congratulations, seniors!
We are so appreciative of our many donors who make these grants and scholarship opportunities possible!
“Give Where You Live”
We are proud that five local businesses continue to support Gilroy’s community foundation as a Sustaining Sponsor. Thank you to Christopher Ranch, Pinnacle Bank, Gilroy Toyota, Recology, and RAC Services, LLC for your commitment to our community and the programs of Gilroy Foundation!
