GreatNonprofits Founder and CEO Perla Ni says “We are proud to bring together key organizations and Silicon Valley non profit leaders to address the need to inspire companies, nonprofits, foundations, and individuals to think about how they can engage locally, and to expand the definition of what it means to “give back," whether with time, money, or thought leadership.”
“It’s vital that we spotlight the wonderful work of these and thousand of other nonprofits to help inspire and inform donors”, Ni continued.
