The nonprofit search tool developed by Magnify Community is an initial prototype, aimed at making it easier for donors to identify vetted nonprofits serving people living or working in San Mateo and/or Santa Clara counties. This database was built aggregating the local portfolios of our six funders: David and Lucile Packard, Grove, Heising-Simons, Sand Hill, Sobrato, and Sunlight Giving foundations, as well as the Peery Foundation’s local portfolio.
This database is a pilot. As we evaluate how helpful it is to support donors in identifying local giving opportunities, we hopefuly will expand it to include more nonprofits doing valuable work.
