The Gilroy Foundation ’ s Board of Directors is aware of local needs . The Directors have developed a strategic plan which involves a four-year campaign to increase its assets from $ 7.5 million to $ 10 million . Achieving this goal would make an additional $ 200,000 available annually for grant giving . The Board of Directors particularly wants to increase the Community Needs and Field of Interest Funds . These types of gifts give the Foundation greater freedom to address a wider range of needed community grants .
