Since Eastside receives no state funding, we rely on generous donors – individuals, foundations, and corporations – whose contributions and volunteer time each year help to support and sustain our work. To the right are more of the many supporters for whom we are deeply appreciative:

Many thanks to SAP for their multi-faceted partnership with Eastside. In addition to providing financial support toward our science, technology, computer science and math curriculum, the company’s employees have been engaged with our students on a variety of activities. Over the summer, in honor of the new SAP Center in San Jose, SAP donated 40 new bicycles to Eastside’s middle schoolers. In September, SAP hosted a Career Exploration Day for a group of our high school students. SAP employees participated in a panel discussion about their career paths and spent time one-on-one with the students, teaching them about the many facets of working for a high tech company. In October, Eastside’s 7th and 8th graders were special guests at a screening of the movie “42” at SAP headquarters and spent time with baseball legend Reggie Jackson afterward, as he reflected on his own experiences growing up and talked with the students about their lives.

We’re grateful to Stephen Silver for coming to Eastside and sharing his extensive knowledge of geology and gemology with the sixth grade class. Building upon their Earth Science unit, the students learned a great deal and also benefitted from Stephen’s general career and life lessons. We sincerely appreciate all he and his team did to make this a special day for the class.

Our sincere thanks to Hewlett-Packard for their recent donation of laptops to replace many of the school’s aging computers. Our students depend on the technology at Eastside to do their homework, classwork and projects, and were often using slow and unreliable equipment. The 6th grade class had a wonderful time unpacking and installing the laptops with a group of HP employee volunteers on a recent afternoon.
