What an incredible day we had during Silicon Valley Gives! … And on Wednesday, some additional gifts pushed us past $10,000 in donations this week. In addition, our donors triggered at least $1,400 in additional prizes, with the possibility of even more ?matching funds still to be announced.
The Foundation was also recognized in the Top Ten in total donors among small non-profits (#6 of 305 similar-sized organizations), and our 120 unique donors ranked #30 across all 850+ SV Gives non-profits! Wow! Thank you!
We hope our community takes some pride — and feels that “Giving Feeling” — for the difference we have made. Small gift or large, the support adds up to some amazing things we’ll be able to fund at our Middle School and High School!
On May 5, the Willow Glen Foundation will kick off its 2015-16 fundraising campaign, as part of “Silicon Valley Gives,” a 24-hour, valley-wide fundraising event for hundreds of non-profits and thousands of donors.
Online gifts during #SVgives make a huge difference, and ensure that our schools have funds to get important programs started, right as the school year begins.
