PARTNERSHIPS & RECENT EVENTS
The Gunn Foundation was honored to participate in this year’s SV Gives 24-hour Fundraising Campaign on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 to raise awareness and funds for so many wonderful causes in our Silicon Valley community! The effort is spearheaded by local philanthropic organization, Silicon Valley Community Foundation, which helps hundreds of local non-profits to raise funds on a single giving day. This year was the first year Gunn Foundation participated. We hope to raise even more awareness (and funds!) in 2017! Make sure to mark your calendars for #SVGives2017!
RISE UP a Palo Alto Unified School District program, readies recent graduates from both Gunn and Paly for college. The Gunn Foundation is partnering with RISE UP to make the transition easier for our scholarship students, many of whom are the first in their family to attend college.
