Sponsorships are a win-win opportunity for both our community partners and Silver Oak Elementary School. Our sponsors get the public recognition they deserve for their engagement in the community and our teachers and staff get the help they need to enhance the educational environment for every child at our school.
Please contact Silver Oak

Silver Oak Educational Partnership ("SOEP"; dba: Silver Oak Elementary PTO) is looking for corporate and small business sponsors to help support enrichment programs, technology investments, and classroom grants not otherwise afforded by the budget granted to our school by the school district. We are hoping you will support us this year to help bring a high standard of balanced education to our students.
SOEP is a recognized non-profit that operates exclusively for charitable and educational purposes within the meaning of section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. We partner with Silver Oak Elementary School staff and parents to provide students with access to resources that support educational enrichment with an emphasis on STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Math), LAR (Language Arts and Reading) and Fine Arts.
SOEP is offering business sponsorship levels that allow for various degrees of recognition for your company's contribution throughout the year. Silver Oak Elementary serves the families in Silver Creek Country Club, Meadowlands and California Oak Creek communities in south San Jose. We have over 600 children at Silver Oak Elementary, that’s over 400 local Evergreen families who see and benefit from your contribution.
If you would like to be an Annual Sponsor or have questions regarding sponsorship, please contact me as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org.
