Los Gatos Giving Program

Make a Difference through the Gift of Giving

The Town of Los Gatos welcomes the opportunity to partner with the community to provide an   effective means of enhancing Town services and programs.  Charitable donations play an integral role in helping the Town maintain its guiding principles:  
§         Small-Town Service
§         Community Stewardship
§         Future Focus
To ensure that all donations and contributions are sought and accepted ethically, the Town Council established a Donation and Solicitation Policy and Town List of Donation Needs.  This policy serves as the foundation for the Town Giving Program.
