To better understand $350K in 2013, what were the goals in recent years and what were the results?

Last year we had an all-time high of $390,000 in donations, boosted by an extra $25,000 from the Packard Foundation. For the last two years the Holiday Fund has received an anonymous $100,000 gift from a Palo Alto family foundation which we are keeping our fingers crossed about receiving again this year. Prior to that, we generally raised between $230,000 and $260,000. Since the Weekly and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation absorb all the costs, increased giving goes straight to the non-profits receiving grants.
