The Foundation develops community partnerships, applies for grants, and cultivates interested donors in the Riverside community and beyond. We have provided support for:
• major school infrastructure projects — landscaping, seating, and shade for the middle school plaza and high school yard; tile wall outside the upper office; future school signage
• student activities — field trips, Science Olympiad, Tohoku University high school student visit, People to People science trip to Europe
• educational items — graphing calculators, P.E. equipment, engineering kits, C-STEM robots, novels, art supplies, and science equipment
• teacher development — grant-writing support, paid planning time for new student programs, curriculum training by outside experts
• community events — Innovate Riverside, a City-sponsored Riverside STEM Academy community fair held downtown and featuring student-led activities, performances and demonstrations. The inaugural event in June included a tiny house built by RSA high school students and funded by a grant secured from the Toshiba America Foundation.
