Silicon Valley Community Grants

Our Commitment to the Community

We are committed to the vitality and long-term well-being of our community, Silicon Valley. Each year the Foundation provides significant financial support to non-profit organizations, particularly those that maintain the health and safety of the community's residents and enrich the community through educational and artistic endeavors.

Due to the decline in the Foundation's assets and our commitment to other issues, the Board of Directors has determined that grants will be limited to the following two categories and will be by invitation only:

  • As a supporting organization of Silicon Valley Community Foundation, we will provide funds to the community foundation for its program grants.
  • As leaders in the community, Steven and Michele Kirsch will recommend grants through the Foundation to charitable organizations with which they have personal ties as Board members or as organizational members.

If your organization, program or project does not meet our guidelines, please see our “Other Funding Sources” page.
