Our Mission

The San Francisco Education Fund harnesses the power of the community to equip every public school student with the skills to succeed in college, career and civic responsibility. We analyze data to target resources where they are needed most, engage volunteers in classrooms, provide grants to educators and award scholarships to students, to build a bright future for our city and its young people.
