    The Silicon Valley Council of Nonprofits is supporting a living wage ordinance here in Santa Clara County. We have worked in strong partnership with labor organizations and our County Board of Supervisors to create a plan that phases nonprofit organizations that contract with the County to have a phased in approach to the living wage. Increasing funding to cover the costs of living wage is a real nonprofit dilemma but one we all must step towards together-nonprofits, foundation, government and individual donors.
