Holiday Fund donors support early literacy in our community.

The Los Altos Town Crier Holiday Fund is in full swing, kicking off its 17th year of assisting local organizations that directly serve those with the most pressing needs in the community.

Since its inception, the Town Crier Holiday Fund has raised approximately $2.6 million. This year, the fund aims to raise $260,000 to benefit 20 recipients.

Holiday Fund contributions are tax deductible and processed through a donor-advised fund at Silicon Valley Community Foundation. The foundation provides letters acknowledging donor contributions. The Town Crier will present grant funds to the 20 organizations in early 2017. The paper also profiles each organization in articles published throughout the holiday season.

We will be publishing 2016 updates for each of the Holiday Fund recipients for the next two months:
