Grants and Awards

We would like to sincerely thank the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation for

making ACT for Mental Health a recipient of their 2014 Community Fund Award in September.  Their recognition of this agency's more than fifty years of work in the downtown area is truly an honor.  It is an affirmation of our belief in providing low-cost, high-quality services to those in need regardless of background or income status.

We would also like to express our deep appreciation to the Western Digital Foundation for honoring ACT with a $15,000 grant award in September 2014.

Finally,  we thank Saratoga Rotary Charitable Foundation for their generous financial grant for special project expenses in August 2011.  Their grant made our new website possible.  We thank them for their generosity and applaud their support of local non-profits.
