Our tangible contributions to the communities we serve would not be possible without the monies raised through our fundraisers each year.

The Shop.

The Shop is our resale store on Santa Cruz Avenue in downtown Menlo Park. Through the sale of gently worn, good-quality merchandise that is donated by the public and members of the League, The Shop raises vital funds to support the League’s work in our community. Since opening its doors more than 40 years ago, The Shop has raised more than $4 million, funding that directly supports our community projects, services and grants.

Endowment Fund

Few nonprofit organizations of our size can boast of having an Endowment Fund to provide a secure source of year-to-year funding. The League’s Endowment Fund was established nearly 20 years ago as a separate fund for the exclusive benefit of the Junior League of Palo Alto•Mid Peninsula to provide a perpetual source of funds to support the League’s community programs and services. The fund makes an annual contribution to the League’s operating budget, using a formula that provides a portion of the fund’s earnings.

Fund Development

Our Fund Development Committee seeks in-kind donations from local businesses and corporations and prepares grant proposals to fund specific needs for the League and our community projects.
