Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF)

The Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) is Silicon Valley Half’s official charity partner. SVEF is the largest educational nonprofit in Silicon Valley and is guided by the belief that all students are capable of pursuing higher education and boosting their future economic mobility regardless of their background. 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).
