Our Mission

The Daneshvar Family Foundation’s mission is to promote pursuit of higher education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) among all individuals, especially women and children.


The Daneshvar Family Foundation believes that increases in human welfare are largely driven by increases in our understanding and mastery of the forces of nature and society. The health of the scientific enterprise, and the education of the scientific community of tomorrow is thus an issue of fundamental importance to us.


Our Strategic Initiatives

We engage the community through outreach, education, celebration, and volunteerism. Our foundation helps stakeholders expand community and educational outreach by:

  • promoting positive visibility within the engineering and technology communities
  • supporting high performing innovative schools and youth enrichment for under-served populations
  • partnering with and making grants to organizations that are tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) and that qualify as public charities as described in Section 509(a)(1), (2), or (3).
