2018 Fund the Future Dinner

Every year Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) hosts an event that brings together the best and brightest of Silicon Valley to honor local philanthropists who are committed to closing the achievement gap for children from low socioeconomic communities. We recognize trailblazing educators and outstanding students while raising the critical funds to help all students get on the path to college and to a brighter future.

Coming Together, Changing Lives

SVEF was thrilled to host the 2018 annual fundraising event: Fund the Future Dinner. We honored Marissa Mayer for her work in the tech industry and her dedication to advancing education.
