Coronavirus and SVF

Tough times ahead.

We need your help.

Since 1983, Silicon Valley Forum have been proud to be one of the Bay Area’s first hubs for connecting Silicon Valley with its entrepreneurial spirit. We’ve provided thousands of opportunities for colleagues and contemporaries to connect, network, learn, and inspire one another; we’ve covered topics from emerging tech to leadership to diversity and inclusion—all with the support of our amazing community and partners.

As conveners of the community, we also have a serious responsibility to keep everyone as safe as we can. With COVID-19 cases growing exponentially and the future of the virus’s impact still unwritten, we have canceled or postponed all of our upcoming events (learn more here) until restrictions are lifted or it is safe to do so. As you can imagine, this is a difficult decision for a nonprofit to come to—it has already had a substantial impact on our organization.

That’s why we’re asking for your support.

Please consider a donation to Silicon Valley Forum to help us through these uncertain times. With your donation, we can continue the work we do creating programs and content to connect and educate our global technology and startup ecosystem, and continue to support diversity, inclusion, women in technology, and our international university students.
