Grant proposals for programs that support out-of-school learning accepted Aug. 17

Out-of-School RFP 2015Starting Monday, Aug. 17, Silicon Valley Community Foundation will accept education grant proposals for programs that help improve student access to high quality, extended learning programs after school and during the summer. 
 
SVCF advances innovative philanthropic solutions to challenging problems. One of these challenging problems – the achievement gap in middle school mathematics that divides English learners, students of color and low-income students from their peers – is addressed through our education strategy. The out-of-school strategy specifically seeks to increase the number and effectiveness of extended learning opportunities for students.
 
The request for proposals (RFP) that opens Aug. 17 and closes Sept. 18 is titled "Education: Closing the Middle School Achievement Gap in Mathematics through an Out-of-School Strategy." Read the full RFP (PDF).
 
Those interested in apply for the RFP are strongly encouraged to attend the information session on Wednesday, Aug. 26. Register now.
 
Applicants will be informed of grant decisions in December 2015. More information
 
 
An RFP for In-School program proposals will be released in October 2015.
