A Lasting Commitment to Silicon Valley’s Nonprofit Sector

The Sobrato Family Foundation’s General Operating Support (GOS) grants provide flexible support for Silicon Valley nonprofits that foster self-reliance, increase economic independence, and improve the quality of life for those most in need. The Foundation partnered with Harder+Company to conduct the first systematic assessment of the impact of the Foundation’s GOS investments on grantees and the broader Silicon Valley nonprofit sector. This report examines the impact and implications of $55 million in GOS grants that the Foundation has awarded over ten years to 187 organizations across the region.
