SRVEF
Grants

The San Ramon Valley Education Foundation (SRVEF) is pleased to announce that 118 grants totalling $67,000 have been awarded to San Ramon Valley Unified School District as part of the Foundation’s partnership with DonorsChoose.org and SRVEF endowment. The grants include four grants for music and seven for science through the SRVEF endowment.

Almost 300 SRVUSD teachers submitted 440 grants this year, more than doubling the number submitted in 2017. By partnering with DonorsChoose.org for the application process, external supporters and external matching funds helped to extend the SRVEF grant funding this year.

“We thank the SRVUSD teachers. We know how much work goes into the writing of a grant application and we value the efforts of the staff in developing these applications on behalf of our students,” said Co-President Gary Alpert. “We appreciate all that everyone did to support the 35th annual Run for Education and the Rotary Club of San Ramon Auction for Education. These two events are our major fundraisers. It is because of staff, student, parent and community participation as well as the support of our sponsors that we are able to offer such a strong grants program that supports all schools and students in the district.”
 
Based on the SRVEF funding criteria, grants requesting technology such as iPads and Chromebooks were not eligible for SRVEF funding since the Technology Initiative provided funding to all schools in 2017 for student devices.

Unfunded teacher grants will remain active on the DonorsChoose.org website for a few weeks during which time the grants may continue to receive external funding. If a grant is not fully funded by the expiration date (expiration dates range from December 29 to February 20, 2019), any external money pledged is returned to the donor. SRVEF will share the list of unfunded grants with school principals and encourage them to approve those that could be funded by their school Ed Funds.
 
Items to be purchased for the teacher grants through DonorsChoose.org are fulfilled by DonorsChoose.org and sent to the warehouse for distribution. This process has eliminated the need to order and ship items through the district’s purchase order system, and the necessary follow up by district staff; in fact, most teachers have already received their granted items.
