SV2's Newest Grantee
Somos Mayfair is SV2’s newest grantee. The Silicon Valley Social Venture Fund (SV2) is a vibrant giving network of more than 200 Partners who come together to learn about effective giving and pool their money and talent to support promising social ventures throughout Silicon Valley and the world.
As a grantee, Somos will receive a three-year unrestricted capacity building investment totaling $150,000 to close the opportunity gap faced by Mayfair children. In addition, Somos will benefit from “beyond-the-dollars” advising to help build their capacity and scale programs. Somos welcomes SV2 as the newest partner whose investment will help foster early school success in Mayfair.
The success of Somos Mayfair is enhanced by our ability to build a strong coalition of advocates and supporters. Our work would not be possible without the contributions of time, talent, and resources that we receive from so many generous people and institutions. We’d like to thank our newest supporters – The Health Trust, Microsoft YouthSpark, and Intel – and long time advocates: FIRST 5 Santa Clara County, United Way Silicon Valley, the Bella Vista Foundation, the Knight Foundation, the Latino Community Foundation, the Castellano Family Foundation, WomenGo!, Cisco, and Texas Instruments.
