The grants help nonprofits strengthen their capacity to provide local services. Awardees include the Day Worker Center of Mountain View’s essential service of matching local employers with reliable workers, Justice Vanguard’s equity initiatives, Community Service Agency (CSA)’s safety net efforts for vulnerable populations, Living Classroom’s school education programs, and Los Altos Stage Company’s theater productions.
