Founded in 1996, the Sobrato Foundation is the private foundation of John A. Sobrato and his family who own the Sobrato Organization, a lucrative Silicon Valley real estate company.[1] The Sobrato Foundation makes large philanthropic contributions through the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF), contributing $78 million to SVCF in 2018.[2] Though the Sobrato Foundation largely focuses on traditional philanthropic giving, their website also states that they have directed grants to left-leaning groups like the New Venture Fund.[3]
