Mavericks Community Foundation was formed in 2015 for the sole purpose of funding non-profits located on the San Mateo County Coast between Montara and Pescadero CA. that promote community development, educational opportunities and environmental stewardship on the San Mateo County Coast. Inspired by the collaborative efforts of nonprofits that participated in Silicon Valley Gives, Mavericks Community Foundation decided to continue this endeavor by facilitating Coastside Gives, an annual day of giving that has one major goal: raise money to give to worthy nonprofits from Montara to Pescadero and bring awareness to the unique culture, environment and spirit of community here.

"A spring 'giving day' has been a key part of Coastside Hope's annual fundraising calendar since 2014. Back then, we had no experience with giving days, and many on our Board were skeptical. But Silicon Valley Community Foundation was sponsoring the first SVGives event, so we decided to participate. Despite our inexperience, we raised over $16,000 on May 6th, 2014! Since then we have gratefully participated in spring giving days sponsored variously by SVCF and the East Bay Community Foundation, raising an average of $27,000 per giving day. We are excited to participate in Coastside Gives on May 1st, 2018, as Mavericks Community Foundation transitions from co-sponsor to lead foundation for this important local fundraising day!"
