Almanac launches Holiday Fund drive

The Almanac is launching its annual Holiday Fund drive this week with a goal of raising $175,000 from readers and supporting foundations.

Since it was launched in 1993 the Holiday Fund drive has raised more than $3 million for local nonprofits that serve those less fortunate in our community. Last year $162,000 was raised, meaning 10 nonprofit agencies each received a check for more than $16,000. And due to support from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, no fees are deducted from gifts to the Holiday Fund.

Visit the Almanac's Holiday Fund site for more information.
