SRVEF Announces 2019 Grant Awards

The San Ramon Valley Education Foundation (SRVEF) is pleased to announce that it has awarded 123 teacher grants totaling $72,443 to the San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD), which includes twenty eight music and science grants funded by the SRVEF Endowment Committee. This year’s total amount awarded exceeds last year’s total by more than $5,000.

Over the past several weeks, the SRVEF grants committee read and reviewed over 350 grant applications submitted from SRVUSD schools. Partnering with DonorsChoose.org for the application process, external supporters and matching funds helped to extend the SRVEF grant funding this year.

“We would like to thank the SRVUSD teachers for their commitment to the writing of the grant applications for the benefit of our students,” said President Gary Alpert. “We also want to acknowledge the community for their support of the 36th annual Run for Education and the Rotary Club of San Ramon’s Auction for Education. Widespread support of these two events is what enables the Foundation to offer such a robust grants program supporting SRVUSD students and schools.”

The SRVEF Grant Program is funded primarily through proceeds from the Run for Education and the Auction for Education. The Endowment Grant Program is funded through the SRVEF annual donation drive and annual recognition dinner.

Each year, SRVEF strives to ensure as many SRVUSD grants as possible are funded. We establish our grant window and the parameters of our program to coincide with other organizations’ funding windows and criteria in order to increase the likelihood of grants receiving funding. Of the 240 grants that met our criteria, 219 were fully funded!

Unfunded teacher grants will remain active on the DonorsChoose.org website for approximately two more months, during which time the grants may continue to receive external funding, including funding from individual and corporate donors, and matching fund donors. If a grant is not fully funded by the expiration date, any external money pledged is returned to the donor.  Grants that still require funding may be reviewed by clicking here
