Cracking the Giving Code: Catalyzing New Investments in Silicon Valley Nonprofits
Board President, The Sobrato Family Foundation
What we do here in Silicon Valley matters, because we fuel innovation for the state, the nation, and the world. Let’s make the Valley known for our social innovations as much as our technology.
Susan Ford Dorsey
President, Sand Hill Foundation
The Peninsula is an amazing place to do good works. The diversity of our community makes it so interesting and challenging, and we have such great minds in Silicon Valley to engage in solving our local problems. Our local needs are great, a fact which is often masked by the vast wealth that has been created here.
President, Sunlight Giving
We never thought of our giving as either/or — national or local. We give to both. Giving locally offers a great opportunity to learn. We can be more in touch with the issues, local leadership, and the communities they serve.
