You CAN make a difference. Just ask Sue!

PACF Donor explains the power in giving where you live

Meet Sue Krumbein, Palo Alto resident and Palo Alto Community Fund (PACF) donor, who shared her perspective on why she chooses to donate locally.

“We really felt confident in this local fund, and honestly we’ve never looked back,” Sue said. “When you go to an event like the Community Fund had at the Junior Museum, how can you not feel that you’ve affected incredible change? When you meet young people who have benefited, when you meet organizers who are running things—it’s just different.”

We are so grateful for our donors, who, like Sue, put their trust in us to invest their dollars in meaningful and life-changing ways within our community. At a time when it’s easy to feel disconnected and disempowered, you can give where you live through the Palo Alto Community Fund and experience a sense of connection and agency.

The Palo Alto Community Fund is now raising funds for our 2023 grant cycle, and we are laser-focused on helping everyone in Palo Alto, East Palo Alto, and Menlo Park thrive. We are here for the long haul—and the WE includes YOU. Make a difference for your community by donating to the Palo Alto Community Fund today. Thank you.
