Our  Community Village

A One-Day Event with Lasting Opportunities

We are looking for organizations with a "Community Building Focus" and a charitable mission. We network with many civic, cultural, churches, schools, businesses and other nonprofits who share our values of volunteerism and giving back.

Welcome to our Community Village...we are making space for you!

The Village is located on Franklin Street between Monroe and Madison in Downtown Santa Clara. Right across from Main Event Stage on Monroe Street along the Parade Route.  

The Santa Clara Parade of Champions has been a leading community building nonprofit organization that brings visibility and fundraises for charities and programs that serve those that need it most since 1945. Community building through partnerships, networking, and opportunities of engagement that support our mission values of Charity, Education, Service and Volunteerism—its together that we all can do the greatest good collectively.

 

The Parade brings visibility to our Community Village participants as well.  In fact, many of our sponsors also have their teams tabling in the village during the Parade festivities.  It's a one-day public event that runs from 9am to 3pm. Santa Clarans can stroll the village, the kid zone, have a coffee, a small bite, and a conversation with our community network of non-profits, educational resources, and diverse cultural groups to learn about programs, services and opportunities in the community.
