Foundation announces $70,000 in education grants

The San Ramon Valley Education Foundation handed out $70,000 in grant funds at its annual meeting last week at John Baldwin Elementary School in Danville. A total of 70 grant requests were funded by the foundation including 23 grants to support the San Ramon Valley Reading and Writing Project.

"Raising money to help support our schools is incredibly rewarding, but seeing the faces of the teachers as they receive their money is what makes it all worthwhile," said Gary Ware, president of the San Ramon Valley Education Foundation. "The amazing work that our teachers do every day must continually be recognized and rewarded."

During the course of its 25-year history, the Education Foundation has given more than $2.4 million in supplemental funds to district schools. The annual Primo's Run, being held this year Oct. 19, is one of its biggest fundraising events.
