From the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation
The San Ramon Valley Education Foundation has launched their 2nd annual Friends of the Foundation membership drive funding Classrooms of the Future.
In 2011, funding from this membership drive allowed SRVEF to pledge $171,000 toward their Classroom of the Future Matching Grant Program benefitting all schools in the SRVUSD. To date, thousands of iPads and other critical technology have been purchased and will be supporting classrooms throughout the school district.
An individual membership is $25 and a family membership is $100. For this contribution, members will receive merchant supporter cards with discounts to various community merchants. Members will also receive car magnets, a yard sign and acknowledgment in the SRVEF annual report and website.
“Technology needs are massive at our schools and we rely on funding from so many sources to give students what they need to be competitive in the 21st century,” said Cristene Burr, Executive Director for SRVEF. “This campaign allows us to infuse technology into the schools by allowing our schools to choose where the needs are at each individual site. It’s a great community campaign that highlights what makes SRVEF so special: our ability to touch every child equally.”
