I wish that there were more money to fund all of the great organizations providing crucial services to many members of our community who have some kind of need. But, I also know that InnVision Shelter Network, Palo Alto Housing Corp., and DreamCatchers all provide excellent service! I am glad that IVSN received additional funds and that these two new groups have secured some support. Bravo and thank you to everyone who works to serve society through these and other non-profits.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
