Board of Directors
 

 

 
 

The Sobratos have a private independent foundation called The Sobrato Family Foundation, formed in 1996, and a public charity named The Sobrato Foundation—a supporting organization of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. Each entity is governed by its own Board of Directors, although the two entities share grantmaking, program and administrative resources, and operate by the same set of values and guiding principles.

 

Sobrato Family Foundation

 

The Board of the Sobrato Family Foundation is governed by ten trustees, six of whom are Sobrato family members. Additional management assistance is provided by Berliner-Cohen (Attorneys), Frank, Rimerman & Co. (Accountants), The Northern Trust Company (Investment Custodian) and the accounting staff of The Sobrato Organization.

The Board of the Sobrato Foundation is comprised of John A. Sobrato representing the Sobrato family, with directors Greg Avis of Summit Partners, and Greg Gallo of DLA Piper. In-kind program and operational support is provided by the staffs of The Sobrato Family Foundation and The Sobrato Organization. Additional program and operational assistance is provided by Opportunity Fund and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
