This is a meeting of the STEAM Funders, a collaboration facilitated by San Diego Grantmakers.


We expect to have participants in the Women in STEM working group of the San Diego STEM Ecosystem Initiative attend to share what they’ve learned, what they've been working on, and their approach to future initiatives.


At the June meeting, STEAM Funders decided to support the work happening through the San Diego STEM Ecosystem Initiative. I had good discussions with the folks at STEM Next (national sponsor) and at the Fleet Science Center (local coordinating organization) about how to make this grantmaking its most effective.

The first action the STEAM Funders decided upon will be $2,000/funder to support the Women in STEM work (currently $8,000 committed); then amounts TBD to fund projects they propose at the end of this year/early 2018, designed in coordination with one or more of the other working groups – K12, corporate partnerships, early ed, environment, innovation. Funding might be via a pool, or could be arranged so that projects are directly funded by our participating funders.

STEAM meetings are open to all staff, trustees, and donors of SDG member organizations and eligible guests who are interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) education. We respectfully request that attendees refrain from engaging in fundraising and other development activities at all SDG events.
