Elevating Achievement Through Innovation

About Us

Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) was founded on the belief that a new kind of organization is needed – one with a different philosophy and approach to the challenges in legacy systems. A nonprofit resource and advocate for students and educators, SVEF is dedicated to putting all students on track for college and careers, focusing on the critical areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

SVEF helps in three simple ways:

We work with school districts to promote best practices and policies.

We offer direct programs and support to educators and students.

We place cutting edge EdTech and resources into live classrooms.


To transform Silicon Valley into a model for enhancing public education.


To leverage partnerships and resources for public education, so all students can realize their full potential.


Silicon Valley will be #1 in the percentage of high school graduates academically prepared to complete post-secondary education, measured by A-G requirements completion rate.
