4 Causes Program Overview
The San Ramon Valley Education Foundation has identified four major causes to rally around. They are STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), Literacy, Classrooms of the Future and Professional Development.
Our Major Gifts and Endowment Fund raises money to support Science and Professional Development. Read with SRVEF raises money to support Literacy and our Friends of the Foundation Annual Campaign raises money to support technology to help complete more Classrooms of the Future at every school in the district. Revenue from our remaining fundraisers support STEM and our educator grant program, which is has been at the core of our fundraising for the past 30 years.
All of the Education Fund’s programming is geared toward a common goal: improving student success in San Ramon Valley public schools. Because no single effort can yield the results we seek, the Education Fund utilizes a multi-faceted approach. Our range of programs focuses on:
- Educators. Our programs for educators promote leadership, professional development and collaboration among teachers and help to enhance and enrich their teaching experience.
- Volunteers. Our volunteer program places and supports volunteers directly in schools, drawing on the skills, talents and dedication of community members, local organizations and businesses to meet student and teacher needs.
- Students. Our programs explore problems facing youth today and believe youth are capable leaders who can be effective allies for their peers.
- Partners. Our strategic partnerships leverage the collective resources of the San Ramon Valley community to provide the greatest opportunities for all students to succeed.
