Four generations of Sobratos have lived and worked in Silicon Valley, and know that while they’ve benefited greatly from the region’s growth, too many residents have not had full access to opportunities or quality of life. They want this entire community to thrive, and know they must support the people and places that are its foundation. The Sobratos are uniquely committed to this region, and the vast majority of the family’s giving stays in Silicon Valley where the wealth was made.
In 2011, the family adopted a more holistic view of its cumulative impact under the title Sobrato Philanthropies, which encompass the family foundation and its support organization, along with the family’s individual giving, and corporate donations made by the 100% family-owned Sobrato Development Companies. All monies granted through these Sobrato Philanthropy vehicles originate from TSO building sales or profits from TSO business activities.
