Sobrato Centers for Nonprofits
Please note that all conference centers and meeting spaces are closed until further notice. Tenant areas are locked to visitors and accessible to tenants for essential services only.
As a tool to support its mission to create a sustainable non-profit sector for the community, the Sobrato Family Foundation converted three Silicon Valley commercial office properties into multi-tenant nonprofit centers: Milpitas, San Jose, and Redwood Shores. In March 2020, Sobrato Philanthropies announced the launch of the application cycle for a fourth nonprofit center in Palo Alto. Click here to learn more.
The centers provide nearly 350,000 square feet of rent-free office, storage, and meeting space. The program provides a home for 73 nonprofit organizations and meeting space for hundreds of organizations annually. The Centers support the various missions of these in-kind grantees by providing a stable work environment and affordable space; rare in this tumultuous rental market. The annual market value of donated space in the three centers is $6 million and the value of the in-kind meeting space is $1.7 million.
