The foundation is proud of the diversity of the STEAM programs we source and support throughout the district. When considering enrichment opportunities for students, we collaborate with teachers and staff to first understand classroom and student needs and then determine what types of programs will complement the curriculum without unduly impacting instructional minutes. Often we look first to popular programs in use at one or two sites whose success can be replicated so more students can benefit. Other times, the foundation, guided by known learning needs, will independently source enrichment opportunities for students. Implementation of programs is always done with an eye toward creating equity within our very diverse school district.


Since our inception, we have funded programs such as:

  • Art in Action visual arts program

  • Mystery Science program at all elementary schools

  • Spoken Word poetry mentorship

  • Excursions to Chabot Space & Science Center for middle school

  • Marine science education days at Pigeon Point for elementary schools

  • Technology and engineering funding for robotics and computer science

  • School gardens and student-led farmstand sales

  • Purchase of Chromebooks for digitally-disadvantaged students during remote learning

  • Mosa Mack and Gizmos science programs at all middle and high schools

  • Performing arts artist-in-residence for our arts magnet school

  • Sponsorship of Diablo Ballet’s exceptional PEEK Outreach initiative for students within the district’s Social Emotional Educational Collaborative programs
