EPAK Day Highlights Students and Teachers at East Palo Alto Academy

– Thursday, May 19, 2016: EPAK donors, volunteers and board members were treated to a chat with the principal, classroom tours, student presentations, and individual teacher and student accounts about the impact EPAK grants have made on their school. This video gives a glimpse into this inspirational high school, one of the eleven schools supported by EPAK.

New Donor Matching Grant – SV Gives 2016

UPDATE: Thank you to the dozens of new donors and everyone who gave on SVGives Day 2016. We were able to raise awareness about EPAK in the community, and fund an entire round of grants at one school!

Silicon Valley Gives is May 3, 2016. This online fundraising event features nonprofits throughout Silicon Valley.

A new donor matching grant from the Melvin and Geraldine Hoven Foundation will double all donations from new EPAK donors, so spread the word to everyone in your contact list! They can schedule their donation now on our SVGives page. You don’t need to wait until May 3 to participate in this match.

Thanks for supporting teachers on Teacher Appreciation Day, with EPAK!
