We spoke with Anne Kepner, Chairperson of Mission City Community Fund (MCCF) and Partner at Needham Kepner & Fish, LLP. After COVID-19 hit, MCCF was miraculously able to pivot and donate over $250,000 to local charities and the City of Santa Clara to meet the growing needs in the community; in part, due to significant donations because of partnerships with Intel and Roche. This year, they are hosting their annual charity event virtually on November 7. To learn more and register to give, visit http://www.missioncityfund.org/november-2020-online-fundraiser.html.
When was the company founded?
MCCF is a 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profit founded in 1986 by leaders in Santa Clara in response to growing needs in the community that were not being met due to decreasing funds from the federal agencies. Since then, MCCF board members, volunteers and community stakeholders have been raising money at annual events and awarding grants to non-profits twice a year that provide services in the areas of healthcare, education, social services, the arts, and the environment.
What products or services does the company provide?
MCCF focuses on five areas of giving: social services, education, health care, theater and arts, and the environment. Over the years, MCCF has supported hundreds of nonprofit organizations throughout Silicon Valley and enabled them to expand and enhance their services.
How is the company involved in the community?
MCCF has donated to more than $3,000,000 to over 200 distinct organizations. All the money raised is invested directly into the community to meet peoples’ most basic needs.
