Dear​ ​Mr.​ ​Tavernise,

Silicon​ ​Valley​ ​Education​ ​Fund​ ​is​ ​requesting​ ​$40,000​ ​to​ ​help​ ​expand​ ​our​ ​successful​ ​math​ ​intervention
program,​ ​Elevate​ ​[​Math​],​ ​to​ ​schools​ ​across​ ​Alameda​ ​County.​ ​We​ ​believe​ ​this​ ​request​ ​fits​ ​within​ ​your
economic​ ​empowerment​ ​giving​ ​area​ ​because​ ​the​ ​program​ ​bolsters​ ​education​ ​in​ ​underserved​ ​communities.

Our​ ​vision​ ​and​ ​mission​ ​are​ ​central​ ​to​ ​our​ ​efforts​ ​in​ ​generating​ ​funds​ ​for​ ​this​ ​math​ ​program.​ ​Our​ ​mission​ ​is
to​ ​provide​ ​underserved​ ​youths​ ​access​ ​to​ ​an​ ​educational​ ​program​ ​designed​ ​to​ ​improve​ ​their​ ​confidence​ ​by

placing​ ​them​ ​on​ ​track​ ​to​ ​pursue​ ​higher​ ​education.

According​ ​to​ ​the​ ​department​ ​of​ ​Education,​ ​California​ ​students​ ​are​ ​underprepared​ ​for​ ​college​ ​with​ ​only​ ​58%
of​ ​graduating​ ​seniors​ ​eligible​ ​for​ ​University​ ​of​ ​California​ ​or​ ​California​ ​State​ ​University​ ​enrollment.
Alameda​ ​County​ ​students​ ​face​ ​greater​ ​odds​ ​with​ ​only​ ​38%​ ​of​ ​graduating​ ​seniors​ ​meeting​ ​eligibility
requirements,​ ​according​ ​to​ ​2015​ ​statistics​ ​from​ ​the​ ​Alameda​ ​County​ ​Office​ ​of​ ​Education.​ ​We​ ​need​ ​your
help​ ​to​ ​bridge​ ​this​ ​inequity.

With​ ​this​ ​grant,​ ​we​ ​will​ ​expand​ ​the​ ​Elevate​ ​[​Math​]​ ​program​ ​service​ ​area​ ​to​ ​include​ ​300​ ​underserved
students​ ​from​ ​Alameda​ ​County.​ ​Your​ ​grant​ ​will​ ​help​ ​secure​ ​facilities​ ​for​ ​instructor​ ​training​ ​and​ ​classroom
instruction.​ ​Your​ ​donation​ ​will​ ​enable​ ​us​ ​to​ ​hire​ ​and​ ​train​ ​10​ ​instructors​ ​to​ ​deliver​ ​75-hours​ ​of​ ​classroom
training​ ​designed​ ​to​ ​improve​ ​confidence​ ​and​ ​performance​ ​on​ ​standardized​ ​testing.​ ​A​ ​District​ ​Advisor​ ​will
be​ ​hired​ ​to​ ​perform​ ​assessments​ ​and​ ​coordinate​ ​training​ ​and​ ​instruction​ ​with​ ​the​ ​schools.​ ​Samsung​ ​will
work​ ​with​ ​us​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​ ​2​ ​Samsung​ ​tablets​ ​loaded​ ​with​ ​instructional​ ​materials​ ​to​ ​each​ ​of​ ​the​ ​10
classrooms.​ ​Each​ ​student​ ​will​ ​receive​ ​a​ ​daily​ ​health​ ​snack.​ ​Student​ ​mindset​ ​and​ ​performance​ ​will​ ​be
assessed​ ​with​ ​entrance​ ​and​ ​exit​ ​surveys.​ ​Lastly,​ ​we​ ​will​ ​review​ ​and​ ​publish​ ​our​ ​results​ ​so​ ​you​ ​can​ ​see​ ​the
impact​ ​your​ ​donation​ ​had​ ​and​ ​to​ ​help​ ​shape​ ​future​ ​programing.

In​ ​2015,​ ​WestEd,​ ​a​ ​nonpartisan​ ​nonprofit​ ​education​ ​group,​ ​released​ ​results​ ​of​ ​yearlong​ ​randomized​ ​control
study​ ​concluding​ ​Elevate​ ​[​Math​]​ ​dramatically​ ​improved​ ​the​ ​number​ ​of​ ​students​ ​that​ ​are​ ​Algebra​ ​ready.​ ​We
have​ ​earned​ ​the​ ​support​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Bill​ ​and​ ​Melinda​ ​Gates​ ​Foundation,​ ​Cisco,​ ​and​ ​other​ ​organizations
determined​ ​to​ ​change​ ​outcomes​ ​for​ ​underserved​ ​students​ ​in​ ​need​ ​across​ ​Silicon​ ​Valley.​ ​We​ ​are​ ​asking​ ​that
you​ ​support​ ​our​ ​mission​ ​and​ ​consider​ ​donating​ ​to​ ​our​ ​organization.

Program​ ​Summary/Project​ ​Description
Silicon​ ​Valley​ ​Education​ ​Foundation​ ​(SVEF)​ ​is​ ​a​ ​nonprofit​ ​organization​ ​focused​ ​on​ ​improving
educational​ ​outcomes​ ​for​ ​Silicon​ ​Valley​ ​students​.​ ​We​ ​currently​ ​serve​​ ​students​ ​and​ ​educators​ ​in​ ​Santa
Clara​ ​County,​ ​San​ ​Mateo​ ​County,​ ​and​ ​Santa​ ​Cruz​ ​County.​ ​We​ ​are​ ​dedicated​ ​to​ ​helping​ ​Silicon​​ ​Valley
students​ ​to​ ​gain​ ​confidence​ ​and​ ​to​ ​improve​ ​their​ ​academic​ ​performance.

Our​​ ​programs​ ​focus​​ ​on​ ​critical​​ ​areas​ ​of​ ​science,​ ​technology,​ ​engineering,​ ​and​ ​math​ ​(STEM).​ ​Our​ ​mission
is​ ​to​ ​make​ ​Silicon​​ ​Valley​ ​a​ ​leader​ ​in​ ​academically​ ​prepared​ ​students.​ ​We​ ​work​ ​towards​ ​this​ ​goal,​ ​by
working​​ ​with​ ​school​ ​districts,​​ ​designing​​ ​programs​ ​to​ ​support​​ ​educators​ ​and​ ​students,​ ​and​ ​placing​​ ​cutting
edge​ ​technology​ ​into​ ​live​ ​classrooms.

We​​ ​currently​ ​operate​​ ​several​ ​education​ ​programs​ ​across​ ​Silicon​​ ​Valley.​ ​The​ ​49​ers​ ​STEM​ ​Leadership
Institute​ ​(SLI)​ ​aims​ ​to​ ​inspire​ ​and​ ​prepare​ ​its​ ​students​ ​to​ ​pursue​ ​STEM​ ​majors​ ​at​ ​top-tier​ ​universities​ ​to
become​ ​the​ ​future​ ​leaders​ ​in​ ​their​ ​fields.We​ ​are​ ​the​ ​anchor​ ​organization​ ​for​ ​LRNG​ ​San​ ​Jose,​ ​a​ ​program
designed​ ​to​ ​close​ ​the​ ​opportunity​ ​gap​ ​and​ ​transforms​ ​how​ ​young​ ​people​ ​access​ ​and​ ​experience​ ​learning.

For​ ​this​ ​program​ ​we​ ​are​ ​working​ ​together​ ​with​ ​schools,​ ​city​ ​leaders,​ ​businesses,​ ​and​ ​community
institutions​ ​such​ ​as​ ​libraries​ ​and​ ​museums​ ​to​ ​build​ ​an​ ​ecosystem​ ​of​ ​learning.​ ​The​ ​goal​ ​is​ ​to​ ​combine
in-school,​ ​out-of-school,​ ​employer-based,​ ​and​ ​online​ ​learning​ ​experiences​ ​into​ ​a​ ​seamless​ ​network​ ​that​ ​is
open​ ​and​ ​inviting​ ​to​ ​all​ ​youth.

For​​ ​this​ ​proposal,​ ​we​ ​are​ ​seeking​ ​to​ ​expand​ ​our​ ​successful​ ​Elevate​ ​[​Math​]​ ​into​​ ​Alameda​ ​County.​ ​ ​Elevate
[Math]​ ​is​ ​a​ ​75-hour​ ​intervention​ ​course​ ​designed​ ​to​ ​prepare​ ​students​ ​for​ ​success​ ​in​ ​8​th​ ​grade​ ​math​ ​by
frontloading​ ​materials​ ​over​ ​the​ ​summer.​ ​ ​The​ ​program​ ​offers​ ​19​ ​half-days,​ ​totalling​ ​75​ ​hours​ ​of
instruction​.​ ​The​ ​program​ ​also​ ​offers​ ​teachers​ ​35​ ​hours​ ​of​ ​professional​ ​development​ ​and​ ​coaching.

A​ ​recent​ ​study​ ​from​ ​WestEd,​ ​a​ ​nonpartisan/nonprofit​ ​research,​ ​development,​ ​and​ ​service​ ​agency​ ​working
with​ ​the​ ​Department​ ​of​ ​Education,​ ​independently​ ​confirmed​ ​the​ ​effectiveness​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Elevate​ ​[​Math​]
program.​ ​Their​ ​year-long,​ ​randomized​ ​trial​ ​showed​ ​that​ ​Elevate​ ​[​Math​]​ ​increased​ ​the​ ​algebra​ ​readiness
level​ ​of​ ​students​ ​by​ ​2.4​ ​times​ ​compared​ ​to​ ​the​ ​control​ ​group.​ ​ ​WestEd​ ​also​ ​released​ ​findings​ ​that​ ​proved
the​ ​program's​ ​success​ ​in​ ​doubling​ ​students​ ​algebra​ ​readiness​ ​in​ ​only​ ​19​ ​days.

We​ ​are​ ​seeking​ ​a​ ​program​ ​grant​ ​to​ ​expand​ ​the​ ​existing​ ​Elevate​ ​[​Math​]​ ​program​ ​to​ ​include​ ​10​ ​more​ ​school
classrooms,​ ​serving​ ​10​ ​teachers,​ ​and​ ​300​ ​students​ ​from​ ​the​ ​Alameda​ ​County​ ​school​ ​district.​ ​We​ ​currently
serve​ ​over​ ​30​ ​school​ ​districts​ ​in​ ​Silicon​ ​Valley,​ ​from​ ​as​ ​far​ ​north​ ​as​ ​San​ ​Francisco​ ​all​ ​the​ ​way​ ​down​ ​to
Gilroy.​ ​Over​ ​the​ ​next​ ​several​ ​years,​ ​we​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​expand​ ​our​ ​service​ ​area​ ​to​ ​include​ ​students​ ​from​ ​the
North​ ​and​ ​East​ ​Bay,​ ​beginning​ ​with​ ​Alameda​ ​County.

The​ ​new​ ​areas​ ​served​ ​would​ ​include​ ​10​ ​classrooms​ ​from​ ​3​ ​schools​ ​across​ ​the​ ​district.​ ​The​ ​population
served​ ​would​ ​be​ ​Alameda​ ​public​ ​school​ ​youths​ ​entering​ ​8th​ ​grade.

Need​ ​Statement
According​ ​to​ ​the​ ​California​ ​Department​ ​of​ ​Education,​ ​58%​ ​of​ ​California​ ​8th​ ​grade​ ​math​ ​students​ ​met​ ​or
exceeded​ ​Common​ ​Core​ ​math​ ​testing​ ​standards​ ​in​ ​2015.​ ​A​ ​2015​ ​demographic​ ​report​ ​from​ ​Kiddata.org
stated​ ​that​ ​54%​ ​of​ ​Alameda​ ​County​ ​8th​ ​graders​ ​were​ ​meeting​ ​or​ ​exceeding​ ​the​ ​same​ ​standards.​ ​The​ ​report
identifies​ ​underserved​ ​communities​ ​in​ ​need,​ ​reporting​ ​only​ ​14%​ ​of​ ​African​ ​American​ ​students​ ​and​ ​21%
of​ ​hispanic​ ​and​ ​Latino​ ​students​ ​are​ ​meeting​ ​or​ ​exceeding​ ​Common​ ​Core​ ​math​ ​testing​ ​standards​ ​compared
to​ ​75%​ ​of​ ​Asian​ ​American​ ​students​ ​and​ ​59%​ ​of​ ​white​ ​students.

Race​ ​and​ ​income​ ​appear​ ​to​ ​reduce​ ​a​ ​student's​ ​chances​ ​to​ ​succeed.​ ​Test​ ​scores​ ​are​ ​higher​ ​in​ ​more​ ​affluent
communities​ ​around​ ​the​ ​Bay​ ​Area.​ ​For​ ​example,​ ​Bowditch​ ​Middle​ ​School​ ​in​ ​San​ ​Mateo​ ​boasts​ ​a​ ​73%
passing​ ​rate​ ​for​ ​their​ ​8th​ ​grade​ ​math​ ​students.​ ​Low​ ​test​ ​scores​ ​lead​ ​to​ ​low​ ​college​ ​transfer​ ​rates​ ​and
limited​ ​opportunities.​ ​Currently,​ ​only​ ​54%​ ​of​ ​California​ ​high​ ​schoolers​ ​are​ ​even​ ​eligible​ ​to​ ​apply​ ​for
University​ ​of​ ​California​ ​or​ ​California​ ​State​ ​University​ ​admission.

Silicon​ ​Valley​ ​Education​ ​Fund​ ​(SVEF)​ ​wants​ ​to​ ​address​ ​wealth,​ ​race,​ ​and​ ​gender​ ​gaps​ ​in​ ​Silicon​ ​Valley
by​ ​supporting​ ​public​ ​education.​ ​SVEF​ ​has​ ​partnered​ ​with​ ​the​ ​49ers​ ​Foundation,​ ​the​ ​Bill​ ​and​ ​Melinda
Gates​ ​Foundation,​ ​and​ ​a​ ​number​ ​of​ ​other​ ​organizations​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​deliver​ ​a​ ​math​ ​intervention​ ​program
designed​ ​for​ ​underserved​ ​students​ ​entering​ ​the​ ​8th​ ​grade.

SVEF​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​continue​ ​to​ ​improve​ ​test​ ​scores​ ​and​ ​outcomes.​ ​Our​ ​board​ ​and​ ​staff​ ​are​ ​fully
committed​ ​to​ ​bridging​ ​the​ ​social​ ​gaps​ ​by​ ​expanding​ ​our​ ​program​ ​to​ ​include​ ​300​ ​students​ ​from​ ​Alameda
county.​ ​We​ ​believe​ ​the​ ​students​ ​in​ ​Alameda​ ​county​ ​have​ ​a​ ​clear​ ​need​ ​for​ ​intervention​ ​and​ ​we​ ​would​ ​like
to​ ​raise​ ​support​ ​for​ ​expansion​ ​to​ ​this​ ​underserved​ ​area.

Evaluation
The​ ​successful​ ​expansion​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Elevate​ ​[Math]​ ​program​ ​will​ ​be​ ​evaluated​ ​at​ ​each​ ​achievement​ ​milestone
in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​document​ ​its​ ​effectiveness​ ​in​ ​meeting​ ​its​ ​goals​ ​and​ ​objectives​ ​and​ ​to​ ​assess​ ​its​ ​impact​ ​on​ ​the
community​ ​it​ ​serves.​ ​The​ ​milestones​ ​that​ ​will​ ​be​ ​measured​ ​are​ ​outlined​ ​in​ ​the​ ​objective​ ​table​ ​that​ ​in​ ​this
report.​ ​The​ ​evaluation​ ​is​ ​designed​ ​to​ ​ensure​ ​that:​ ​a)​ ​implementation​ ​of​ ​the​ ​program​ ​will​ ​be​ ​monitored​ ​at
scheduled​ ​intervals;​ ​b)​ ​defined​ ​progress​ ​measurements​ ​will​ ​be​ ​utilized​ ​to​ ​determine​ ​the​ ​impact​ ​and
success​ ​of​ ​project​ ​activities;​ ​c)​ ​analysis​ ​of​ ​data​ ​will​ ​be​ ​used​ ​to​ ​assess​ ​impact,​ ​shape​ ​future​ ​programs,​ ​and
will​ ​be​ ​shared​ ​with​ ​constituents​ ​and​ ​the​ ​community.
Silicon​ ​Valley​ ​Education​ ​Foundation​ ​(SVEF)​ ​will​ ​contract​ ​with​ ​an​ ​external​ ​evaluator​ ​to​ ​ensure​ ​that​ ​an
extensive​ ​evaluation​ ​is​ ​conducted​ ​on​ ​the​ ​Elevate​ ​[Math]​ ​program.​ ​The​ ​qualified​ ​third​ ​party​ ​evaluator​ ​will
provide​ ​an​ ​objective​ ​evaluation​ ​for​ ​the​ ​grant​ ​program.​ ​ ​The​ ​services​ ​provided​ ​by​ ​the​ ​evaluator​ ​will​ ​likely
include​ ​monitoring,​ ​assessment,​ ​development​ ​of​ ​evaluation​ ​report,​ ​and​ ​establishment​ ​of​ ​formative
evaluation​ ​system.

The​ ​External​ ​Evaluator​ ​will​ ​collect​ ​and​ ​analyze​ ​all​ ​project​ ​data​ ​upon​ ​milestone​ ​completion,​ ​reporting
findings​ ​within​ ​one​ ​month​ ​of​ ​milestone​ ​completion.​ ​The​ ​evaluation​ ​will​ ​offer​ ​all​ ​project​ ​stakeholders​ ​an
opportunity​ ​to​ ​assess​ ​the​ ​project's​ ​success​ ​and​ ​make​ ​recommendations​ ​based​ ​off​ ​the​ ​results.​ ​The​ ​Board​ ​of
Directors​ ​will​ ​review​ ​the​ ​assessment​ ​and​ ​community​ ​input​ ​before​ ​making​ ​any​ ​necessary​ ​changes​ ​to​ ​the
program.

The​ ​evaluation​ ​will​ ​include​ ​both​ ​summative​ ​(impact)​ ​and​ ​qualitative​ ​(subjective)​ ​ ​performance
assessments.​ ​Summative​ ​evaluation​ ​methods​ ​will​ ​address​ ​project​ ​implementation​ ​and​ ​consequent​ ​changes
in​ ​youth​ ​outcomes​ ​regarding​ ​academic​ ​achievement​ ​objectives.​ ​The​ ​key​ ​summative​ ​questions​ ​for​ ​this
evaluation​ ​are:​ ​a)​ ​ ​Is​ ​the​ ​project​ ​achieving​ ​its​ ​objectives​ ​and​ ​performance​ ​targets?​ ​and​ ​b)​ ​What​ ​is​ ​the
project’s​ ​impact​ ​on​ ​student​ ​behavior,​ ​attitudes​ ​and​ ​academic​ ​achievement?​ ​The​ ​evaluation​ ​will​ ​examine
the​ ​impact​ ​of​ ​the​ ​project​ ​on:

● Academic​ ​achievement,​ ​including​ ​analysis​ ​of​ ​grades​ ​and​ ​performance​ ​on​ ​state​ ​administered
Common​ ​Core​ ​testing.​ ​ ​Data​ ​will​ ​be​ ​collected,​ ​and​ ​assessed.
● Summative​ ​evaluation​ ​reports​ ​will​ ​be​ ​submitted​ ​to​ ​the​ ​project​ ​partners,​ ​and​ ​summative​ ​evaluation
data​ ​and​ ​results​ ​will​ ​be​ ​included​ ​in​ ​year-end​ ​Financial​ ​Report​ ​in​ ​addition​ ​to​ ​being​ ​posted​ ​online.

Qualitative​ ​evaluation​ ​methods​ ​will​ ​address​ ​students​ ​attitudes​ ​towards​ ​their​ ​academic​ ​performance​ ​and
their​ ​experience​ ​in​ ​the​ ​program.​ ​The​ ​key​ ​qualitative​ ​questions​ ​for​ ​this​ ​evaluation​ ​are:​ ​a)​ ​What​ ​are​ ​the
students​ ​attitudes​ ​when​ ​facing​ ​math​ ​problems?;​ ​b)​ ​Did​ ​the​ ​students​ ​attitude​ ​improve​ ​as​ ​a​ ​result​ ​of
participating​ ​in​ ​the​ ​program?;​ ​c)​ ​Did​ ​the​ ​student​ ​feel​ ​the​ ​program​ ​helped​ ​improve​ ​their​ ​confidence​ ​and
abilities?​ ​The​ ​evaluation​ ​will​ ​measure​ ​the​ ​impact​ ​of​ ​the​ ​project​ ​on:

● Student​ ​attitudes,​ ​including​ ​self​ ​reported​ ​confidence​ ​levels​ ​at​ ​the​ ​beginning​ ​and​ ​completion​ ​of​ ​the
program.
● Student​ ​evaluation​ ​of​ ​experience
