It’s a NEW YEAR for Gilroy Assistance League (GALs)!
Under the leadership of this year’s President Margaret Demers, we’re looking forward to another outstanding year hosting projects to benefit our local youth.
In the planning stages: Holiday Adopt a Family, offering $18,000 in grants to local organizations who support programs for youth, and the 11th Annual Home and Garden Tour, “Impressions” on Mothers’ Day weekend 2015, featuring homes and gardens in the Morgan Hill area.

In youth we learn….
Gilroy Assistance League, a non-profit corporation of 35 active women, provides grants to local health and recreation programs, visual and performing arts, and numerous other youth-oriented projects in our local Gilroy community.
The group began in 1959 with 15 women as a Chapter of Children's Home Society involved in adoptive services. In 1984, the name changed to Gilroy Assistance League, or GALs, and the group decided to concentrate all fundraising efforts on the local community. GALs is still a small group of women focused on local causes and needs that we feel are important.
Gilroy Assistance League has a very important associate membership who pay dues and supports the organization's many endeavors.
Grant requests are invited annually.
