Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become a Member?
Becoming a Member of Gilroy Foundation is easy and quick: simply fill out a membership form and submit payment either online or by mail. Please see Become a Member for more information.
How do I start my own Fund?
Gilroy Foundation makes it easy for you, your family, or your organization to start a separate charitable fund. The minimum amount to start a separate fund is $10, 000. Consecutive annual donations via our membership program is another way to establish a fund. When those donations come to $10,000, Gilroy Foundation will contact you about establishing your own Fund.
