Silicon Valley Gives 2015

Donate Online to JW House for “Silicon Valley Gives” and WIN two round-trip Alaska Airlines tickets!

Silicon Valley Gives is a 24-hour online fundraising effort, hosted by the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. This year’s event will be on May 5. Last year’s, first-ever, SV Gives event raised over $8 million for 600 nonprofits in the area. Nearly $6,000 of that went to JW House. This year, we’ve set our sights higher and need YOU to help us reach our goal of $10,000 raised online during the 24 hours of SV Gives from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm on May 5.

By making a donation to JW House online before or during SV Gives, you can win two round trip Alaska Airlines tickets.
