Leadership Circle

What is the Leadership Circle?

The Leadership Circle is a group of our most generous and engaged families, community members, alumni, and alumni families whose annual financial support provides the cornerstone of the Mountain View Los Altos High School Foundation’s grant to fund vital academic programs. Leadership Circle membership begins with a minimum annual contribution of $5000, which can be done through an outright gift, recurring gifts, or a donation matched by a corporate matching gift. Contact the Foundation Office at info@mvlafoundation.org or (650) 940-4670 if you would like to participate!

  • Invitation to Leadership Circle events
