Silicon Valley Community Foundation

Silicon Valley Community Foundation is a leading voice and catalyst for innovative solutions to the region's most challenging problems. Their mission, vision and values reflect our commitment to serving the vibrant and diverse community that makes up San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.

Serving all of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, Silicon Valley Community Foundation is a partner and resource to organizations improving the quality of life in that region, and to those who want to give back locally, nationally and internationally.

The community foundation has developed a series of Requests for Proposals, or RFPs, that address five grantmaking strategies: Economic Security; Immigrant Integration; Education (Closing the Middle School Achievement Gap); Regional Planning (Land Use and Transportation Planning); and a Community Opportunity Fund focused on safety-net issues and innovative ideas.

BDPA Bay Area chapter has the best chance of funding from the Education strategy.
