LACF awards $84.5K in grants to local nonprofit organizations

Los Altos Community Foundation recently awarded $84,500 in its spring grants cycle to 18 local nonprofit organizations and programs that improve the quality of life for seniors, youth and vulnerable populations in Los Altos, Los Altos Hills and Mountain View.

The grants support programs such as the Community Health Awareness Council’s development of increased cultural and racial literacy by its clinical supervisors and interns, Parents Helping Parents’ outreach and support services to families with special-needs children and Peninsula Symphony’s summer pops concert in downtown Los Altos.

“LACF’s community grants help local nonprofits more effectively address community needs,” said Joe Eyre, LACF executive director. “We’re proud of how these grants enable the development of new programs for greater local impact.”

In addition to CHAC and Parents Helping Parents, LACF awarded grants to: Adolescent Counseling Services; Family Engagement Institute; Festival of Lights Parade Association; Grassroots Ecology; GreenTown Los Altos; Hope’s Corner; Los Altos History Museum; Los Altos Stage Company; Los Altos Village Association; Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence; Peninsula Bridge for the Peninsula Bridge Mountain View Middle School Academy; and Senior Inclusion and Participation Project.
