SVCF Grant Program Overview

The Silicon Valley Community Foundation's (SVCF) grant-making goal for education is to invest in strategies that will accelerate students’ academic performance in mathematics while strengthening their literacy skills. SVCF strives to achieve this goal by providing local educational agencies (LEA) funding through SVCF's Accelerating Student Success in the Common Core grant program. 

SVCF has two key foci for this grant:

1. Developing innovative approaches to providing teacher professional development focused on integrated instruction and peer collaboration. 

2. Supporting extended learning programs that are aligned with instruction during the school day. 

Additionally, SVCF is interested in how funded districts can effectively engage parent and community members of students being served.
