SAP and the Sharks Foundation are participating in a $25 million fundraising effort to support the future of healthcare for women and children in Silicon Valley.
SAP, the Sharks Foundation, the Rademakers Family, and FIRST 5 Santa Clara County have committed $5.75 million in seed funding to create a Women and Children’s Center (WCC) at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center (SCVMC).
A $750,000 gift from SAP and the Sharks Foundation will sponsor the Pediatric Unit, located on the fifth floor of the WCC.
“The Sharks Foundation is thrilled to partner with SAP to fund the pediatric floor at the new Women’s and Children’s Center at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center,” said Jeff Cafuir, Manager of the Sharks Foundation. “We are extremely pleased to be involved with such a unique project that is going to make a significant and positive impact on the lives of so many here in Santa Clara County.”
