We Need Your Help
Today, we have a unique opportunity to build a Town Center that provides top-notch civic services in a setting with wonderful amenities for our families. But we can’t turn this concept into a vibrant reality without your support.
That’s why the Atherton Now – Building Community committee launched this campaign to raise $25 million for our new Civic Center. We hope you’ll join our efforts to build what is missing in our town—a true center that will enrich the way we live and learn. We encourage you to make an investment in our community. You may wish to donate cash or other appreciated assets, such as stock. All donations to Atherton Now are 100% tax deductible. Refund Policy.

The 1923 Club
This is the $1 million and above donation level. Atherton was founded in 1923 and these million dollar donors are “the founding families” of our new Civic Center.
The Fair Oaks 500
This is the $500,000 level. Before Atherton was officially named, the summer community here was called “Fair Oaks” in reference to our beautiful native trees.

This is the $250,000 level. Station Lane is where our civic center was built in 1929, next to our historic train station.
