SRVEF Announces 2022 Grant Awards

The San Ramon Valley Education Foundation (SRVEF) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2022 Teacher Grants. Once again, SRVEF partnered with  As a result of matching funds and external donations, SRVEF funded ALL ELIGIBLE grants.

This year, SRVEF has awarded 151 grants totaling $34,456.12, including 24 music and science grants funded by the SRVEF Endowment Committee.

Because of a generous match from an anonymous donor, we were able to expand our eligibility requirements, funding grants that were submitted as early as August 1st and as recent as November 28, 2022. 33 schools had one or more grants funded by SRVEF.  125 Teachers had at least one grant funded, while some were funded multiple times.

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 our annual donation drive and annual recognition lunch, Celebrate Innovation in Education.

Unfunded teacher grants will remain active on the DonorsChoose 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.  

All funded SRVUSD Grants may be reviewed on the Site are available by clicking here.
