Your gift, of any amount, creates positive changes

Your gift, of any amount, creates positive changes in children's lives through the San Francisco Education Fund's programs and fuels projects like these:

  • Sponsor an Event

    Each year the San Francisco Education Fund organizes special events that entertain and inspire our community while supporting our programs in public schools.

    The Bright Futures Gala takes place each fall and showcases success stories from our schools, providing supporters with a look at the impact they have made in the lives of students and teachers. The Gala, which draws more than 350 attendees each year, also provides a chance to mingle and network with fellow members of the community that believe in the transformative power of a great education. Sponsorships go on sale starting in the summer.

    The Education Fund also partners with its Young Professionals Council to host annual fall and spring fundraisers. Each fall, we throw Back to School Bourbon Night, which features tastings of bourbon and whiskey, raffle prizes and music. Our spring fundraiser has a rotating theme and draws more than 200 young professionals each year. Past years’ themes include Prom and Casino Night.

    Interested in sponsoring one of our events for young professionals? Contact Kristine Nodalo.
