Philanthropy is a core part of Mayfield’s DNA. Mayfield established a dedicated vehicle called the Mayfield Foundation over two decades ago, through which the Firm has been an active supporter of university programs, hospitals, and non-profit institutions.
Mayfield Partner Emeritus Gib Myers founded the Entrepreneur Foundation (EF) in 1998 to guide companies and individuals toward philanthropy. EF encouraged startups to commit pre-IPO stock to the foundation. EF has since merged with the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
We are continuing this tradition for needy organizations today such as those assembling medical supplies for healthcare workers in New York and local community organizations for children.
