Our members are vital to our mission!
By giving annually, Gilroy Foundation members play a crucial role in keeping our endowed fund active and robust. This directly benefits our community through yearly grants, as well as ensures a reserve of funds to continue enhancing Gilroy well into the future.
We believe that philanthropy should be accessible to everyone. That’s why we offer a wide range of membership levels, allowing you to make a meaningful impact for less than $10 a month!
If your consecutive annual membership donations add up to $10,000 in total, then you’re eligible to open your own fund as well.
Choose where your generosity goes:
- General Grantmaking Fund: By selecting this fund, you make an impact on the most urgent needs of our community, addressing diverse challenges as they arise.
- Community Needs Funds: These funds, available in the fields of Agriculture, Art, Education, Health, and Technology, support our Competitive Grants Program. By choosing a Community Needs Fund, you can align your dollars with the cause that resonates most with your philanthropic vision.
Five percent of year-end balances from these investment funds fuel our annual grant-making cycle, ensuring that the impact of our collective efforts continues to flourish.
