HTHH-Silicon Valley awards grants to organizations focused on keeping girls in STEM 

High-Tech High Heels is proud to announce the 2022 Grant awardees to two organizations in Silicon Valley that offer programs to keep more girls in STEM. These are the first ever grants distributed by High-Tech High Heels Silicon Valley and is a huge milestone for the first expansion of High-Tech High Heels’ national organization.  We are extremely thankful to have these partners, who passionately deliver these outstanding programs.

Girls Inc. of Alameda County received a grant that helps provide programming in a girls-only environment. For more than 60 years, Girls Inc. of Alameda County has served the community as a local affiliate of the national Girls Inc. organization with the shared mission of inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. Girls Inc. responds to the unique needs of girls at the intersection of racial, gender, and economic equity in the most under-resourced communities in San Francisco’s East Bay through a proven continuum of hundreds of hours of K-12 academic, health, and leadership programming, delivered annually in schools and our centers.

Mountain View Educational Foundation received a grant to fund for programs essential to a well-rounded and competitive education but not covered by the limited budget provided by federal and state funding. Most of the art, music, science, and athletic programs in the Mountain View Whisman School District (MVWSD) are locally funded by the Measure B parcel tax and the MVEF, with some PTAs funding additional site-specific programs at each school.

Thank you to all of our generous donors for their continued support, which allows us to fund these innovative, inspiring, and educational STEM programs for girls in Silicon Valley.
