Samaritan House was selected to receive a $50,000 grant thanks to Stephen Carlson, our champion with the Yahoo Employee Foundation (YEF), who recommended us, and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. The $50,000 YEF Impact Grant will be used to support our Client Services department.
The Yahoo Employee Foundation provides Yahoo employees the opportunity to help an organization they care about to apply for a grant by acting as a YEF grant champion. The YEF grants committee, made up by Yahoo employee volunteers, evaluates the applications based on clearly defined criteria.
A huge thank you to the grant’s fiscal sponsor, the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
