Los Altos nonprofit awards $60,000


The Los Altos Community Foundation (LACF) has donated over $1.7 million to Los Altos community organizations since its founding in 1991, and that amount just got a little larger.

LACF awarded over $60,000 in grants to local nonprofit organizations that aim to help the community in areas such as the environment and the arts.

The grants support local programs including the Center for Age-Friendly Excellence and Adolescent Counseling Services' Outlet Program for LGBTQ youth. The grants also help fund organizations such as GreenTown Los Altos, Peninsula Bridge and Los Altos Stage Company.

LACF's Donors Advised Fund owners have given nearly $100,000 in 2017's first quarter to nonprofit organizations that support the Los Altos community.

"LACF is proud that its grants enable nonprofits to address a diverse set of unmet community needs through innovative approaches and partnerships," said Joe Eyre, the foundation's executive director, in a press release. "Our unique and consistent approach makes a difference for the community."

$100,000 is only enough to buy one car.

Unlike Mountain View, which is pouring much more precious money down socialistic black holes, looks like Los Altos has gotten its priorities right again --- as usual. This is the difference between informed self-interest and blind socialism.
