Thriving Nonprofit Sector

The Sobrato Family Foundation believes that a thriving nonprofit sector is important for vibrant communities.

Our efforts support grantees through three key strategies:

  • Skills-based learning, including our Speaker Series and intensive cohort-based learning programs such as the Sobrato Impact Lab
  • Grantmaking to support project-specific capacity building projects for grantees
  • Advocating and mobilizing the philanthropic community around our nonprofit partners’ core support needs through collaboration, communications, and funding solutions

The Foundation believes that strong leadership and staff, sound finances and operations, and effective program strategy and evaluation are critical for nonprofits to achieve their missions. By nurturing our partners’ ability to build these core capacities, we believe that we can nurture an effective, resilient nonprofit ecosystem prepared to meet the evolving needs of Silicon Valley’s low-income communities.
