Pleasanton Weekly Holiday Fund 2011

Holiday Fund donors, beneficiaries and how to participate

The ninth annual Pleasanton Weekly Holiday Fund is underway! The community-wide campaign provides needed funding for vital local nonprofits and has given more than $1 million to local non-profits in the past eight years.

This year, the Tri-Valley Community Foundation has agreed again to provide matching funds of up to $50,000 to the campaign so that for every $1 contributed, another $1 will be given to these five nonprofits. With the match, this year's goal is $100,000 with the funds to be allocated equally to each of the five organizations: Axis Community Health, Hope Hospice, Open Heart Kitchen, Valley Humane Society and the Ryan Comer Cancer Resource Center at ValleyCare Health System Foundation.

To donate, print and complete donation form, then mail or drop off the form and your check to The Pleasanton Weekly, 5506 Sunol Blvd., Pleasanton, CA 94566. Our office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, but there is a mail slot.
