Support Valdes Math

Valdes Math has been serving traditionally underrepresented communities in the Bay Area for over 30 years, making sure that all our students have access to math.

Our Mission:
“The mission of Valdés Math is to contribute to the development of the whole student by advancing their math skills and enabling them to flourish in a diverse community.”

Learn about all the ways you can support the program and give the gift of education.


As a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization we funnel all tuition costs back into the organization. This means your gifts go directly to Valdés students’ education. You will provide our students scholarships, transportation, classroom materials, and snacks to keep our students concentrated in class.

Almost all Valdes students arrive at Valdes campuses via school bus. Help provide a Valdes student a ride to our summer program by giving today.
Food is an essential part of learning! Keep Valdes students' energy up by supplying them with snacks.
Last year, supporters like you provided nearly 400 students with scholarships for our summer program. Let's increase the amount of scholarships given for the 2022 summer!
Workbooks, pencils, pens, and notebooks are essential to Valdes programming. Your generosity will give our students the tools they need to succeed.
