On behalf of The Silicon Valley Organization (The SVO), I am writing to support the important work of Ohlone College. Its successful operation and resources are essential for connecting entrepreneurs and start-ups to economic development opportunities. By way of background, we are the Silicon Valley’s premier business advocacy organization representing 1,400+ companies that employ nearly 300,000 workers and we represent our membership as the region’s largest Chamber of Commerce.

The SVO continues to support economic development initiatives, particularly partnerships between education institutions and the business community. We collaborate with Ohlone College to provide access to our 1,400+ business members. Our team supports businesses by connecting them to institutions like Ohlone College for recruitment of entry-level, middle skilled, and high skilled occupations. As we seek to expand our economic development initiatives, we are thrilled at the prospect of partnering with Ohlone College to provide high quality consulting and training opportunities.

On behalf of The SVO, I pledge my full support to Ohlone College’s receipt of its grant proposal. We look forward to future collaborations with Ohlone College and I hope you will approve their grant request to continue our regional workforce & economic development partnerships.

Wondering how you can help during this time? Social distancing doesn't mean social isolation. We still need to support the nonprofits in our region who are continuing to provide critical services to the people of our community day and night—ensuring our most vulnerable populations are being housed, fed and cared for. However, they could really use our help in a number of ways: donating extra supplies, offering your time as a volunteer or through any generous donations in order to sustain themselves.
