PBL Teacher Mini-Grants

The San Leandro Education Foundation is pleased to offer DIRECT SUPPORT to San Leandro USD teachers who are engaging their students with teaching units that may require additional materials or financial support.

SLED has allocated funds to support material or field-trip needs for special projects including Project Based Learning. The total allocation varies according to enrollment and need. The deadline for applying is March 29, 2019 or when funds have been exhausted for your school site, whichever comes first. For more information regarding current availability of funds, please inquire with your site administrator.

If you have questions about your application, please feel free to contact Morgan Mack-Rose directly at Please do NOT call the main SLED phone number or email through the website as that may delay our response.

2018 STEAM Breakfast

Each year the San Leandro Education Foundation Board of Directors and your fellow community members gather for our annual Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead for Education Breakfast.

This is a free, invitation only event for our SLED100 major donors and other community members interested in learning more about SLED's impact on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math in San Leandro schools.

In addition to an inspiring update on the work, we will be announcing a significant partnership with the San Leandro USD that will help to double the amount of hands-on science San Leandro's elementary students experience during the week and after school at two pilot elementary school sites.


Each Fall, SLED raises money for schools with our SLED Gala.

Thank you to all our sponsors, supporters and attendees for make each SLED Gala successful.
