Silicon Valley Education Foundation

Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) is Silicon Valley Half’s official charity partner. 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).
