Make a difference for women in STEM

Everyone says that they want to support women in STEM – so here is YOUR CHANCE TO TAKE ACTION and support our future STEM leaders and visionaries. Your gift is tax-deductible and you will be given the option to select which of the finalists you would like to support. 100% of your donation, minus payment processing fee, will go to the student you designate.




The Beck Family’s* commitment to young women pursuing STEM education and careers is the catalyst behind the Gems of STEM Scholarship. Annually, it awards one high school female or female-identifying senior with $5,000 toward their continuing STEM education.

The GiveTeens20®® Board and Gems of STEM Scholarship selection committee were overwhelmed by the quality of this year’s applicants! After much deliberation, two finalists were selected for the 2020 Gems of STEM Scholarship, and we are excited to announce that this year’s recipient is the impressive Imani F. In response to the challenge of selecting only one applicant, we’ve decided to add to the funds by making and asking for personal donations that would support one of the finalists!

Each of our applicants, especially our two finalists, have worked incredibly hard – and we feel that they deserve and could use our support as they embark on changing the face of STEM.

GiveTeens20® invites you to join us by making a personal donation to one, or both of the finalists.

You can get to know each of the finalists by watching their personal statement videos below.

*The Beck family created and funds the Gems of STEM Scholarship through The Silicon Valley Community Foundation


Your donation to GiveTeens20®® puts us into high school classrooms, either physically or virtually, where we encourage, equip and prepare the next-generation workforce through self-assessment via Gallup Strengths®, one-on-one virtual coaching and skills training.  As one student put it,

“Thank you for coming to our class and helping me and showing me new ways to describe myself and give me new options. Also for bringing people to tell us that all our dreams are in reach if we push ourselves to the limits. Thank you for always coming here.”
