Who Are We?

The Sunnyvale Education Foundation (SEF) is an independent, non-profit corporation dedicated to funding exciting new learning opportunities for Sunnyvale students and teachers.

Since its inception in 1999....

  • SEF has funded approximately $1 million in teacher grants which provide innovative and engaging learning opportunities that would otherwise not be supported by the existing operational budget.

  • SEF has awarded over $140,000 in student scholarships

  • SEF funds the SISD Teacher of the Year program, thereby incentivizing superior instruction in SISD classrooms.

SEF couldn't do what it does without the generous support of Sunnyvale parents, community partners and local businesses.
