The foundation is important because it serves the whole community, and does not discriminate between local interest groups.

    Volunteerism runs deep with the Patrick family

    Growing up, local architect Stevan Patrick (pictured with Eagle Scout J.B. Pellegrin) learned early about the concept of giving back to one's community from watching his Dad. His father, also an architect and one who apprenticed with Frank Lloyd Wright, moved to Woodside before it was even a town. Serving as an early Town Council member, the elder Mr. Patrick put in his time serving his community as a dedicated and revered Town leader.

    Kathi Dancer and the Woodside Junior Riders

    At 6 years old, Kathi Dancer and her younger sisters began riding with the Woodside Junior Rider (WJR) program at the Kiely Equestrian Center in Woodside. Years later, when her own children were old enough, Kathi's children rode with the program too. In 1999, after more than 40 years of running Woodside Junior Riders humbly, quietly, and entirely by herself, Ursula Eisenhut decided it was time to pass the baton.

    Woodside Day of Giving, May 12, 2018

    The Woodside Community Foundation's Board of Directors was delighted by the response to its first call for Community Grant Projects. The range and depth of great causes was truly impressive, leaving the Board looking for ways to provide more support to all these great projects.

I am happy to be working with the great group of dedicated Woodsiders who are committed to the Woodside Community Foundation. This is a wonderful place to live, and we are fortunate to have the Foundation working to keep the Town's true community feeling.
