About Our Grantmaking
As a local grantmaker, LAMVCF primarily aligns its local funding with nonprofits and public entities based in – or directly serving – the communities of Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, and Mountain View. We also work with our donors and donor-advised fund holders on giving opportunities in the greater Bay Area, the state, and beyond.
Funding for our Community Grants and E3 Youth Philanthropy programs comes from our local funding partners and donors. The MVLA Scholars program directly raises its funding from local donors.
In the calendar year 2022, LAMVCF distributed over $220,000 to 58 organizations through our Community Grants Program.
Our focus area for spring 2023 is Mental Health Needs for Youth and Young Adults. To add your organization to the notification list, please email email@example.com.
