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.
