We invest in change through education because every child deserves every opportunity to reach his or her potential. When schools are a center of community, we transform the Bay Area’s potential in economy, health and a thriving community.
Please note: Education is no longer its own Program Area and is being reviewed as part of our strategic planning process.  Please check back after June 1, 2016 for more information or contact the Program Director or Program Officer with whom you worked on previous grants.
