Gilroy Foundation Ambassadors

Ambassadors are local residents and business leaders who help promote awareness about Gilroy Foundation in the community and also contribute to special committees and events.

  • We call on our Ambassadors to represent the foundation at local events such as Chamber Mixers and fundraisers for our nonprofit investment partners.
  • We invite them to be grant and scholarship readers.
  • We ask them to visit a grantee organization and let us know how a grant from Gilroy Foundation impacted their group.
  • We call them with questions and advice as we investigate new outreach and awareness programs. We communicate with them via email quarterly and invite them to attend one meeting each year to be made aware—first hand—of the goings on of Gilroy Foundation.

Gilroy Foundation’s Ambassadors are our eyes and ears in our local community.
