According to Gilroy Assistance League President , Lori Kent , “ In 2022 , the Gilroy Assistance League was thrilled to award over $ 21,000 in grants to eight very-deserving organizations . But the news gets better … in 2023 we are increasing our giving by 50 %. We ’ re projecting to grant over $ 31,000 ! That ’ s quite an increase and all due to the incredible generosity of our Annual Home & Garden Tour supporters , sponsors , and participants .”
“ We ’ re calling on youth organizations throughout South Santa Clara County ,” explains GALS Grants Committee Chair Paula Goldsmith . “ Think of the wish list you have for your organization . Is limited funding keeping your goals from becoming reality ? Gilroy Assistance League grants can provide youth-oriented organizations with an opportunity to fund an existing need or expand outreach or services . If your mission meets our criteria , please consider applying .”
