     Message from our Executive Director


Dear Friends,
Thank you all who participated in “Silicon Valley Gives” on May 3.  It was another successful event!

This May and June, 79 students will be receiving $652,000 in scholarship awards.  This is our largest award season to date.  We applaud those students who have earned these awards and our donors who have set up funds to enable Gilroy students to receive life-altering scholarships!

Our next big event will take place in July.  The Gilroy Foundation was chosen as the local charity to benefit from volunteers at the 2016 Women’s Open at CordeValle via Program Sales.  Please scroll down to see an opportunity to become part of the event!

As always, thanks go to all our volunteers, donors and supporters for being part of the cause – to “Give Where You Live!”
