Why Give?

All students need an education that sparks their futures and sets them on a path to college and career. The role of great public schools has never been more important. And yet, state funding for public schools in California is distressingly inadequate.

Alumni, community members and friends like you ensure that San Francisco public schools will never stop transforming lives. Your gift, whatever its size, makes a huge difference in assuring our city’s children can attain the skills necessary to live, work and thrive in San Francisco.

The reasons for making a gift to San Francisco public schools are personal and varied. Perhaps you are grateful for your k-12 experience and want to give something back. Maybe you would like to leave a legacy to benefit your own children or future for generations to come. Perhaps you feel passionate about supporting an important cause, such as narrowing the achievement gap, attracting and retaining talented teachers, or sparking academic excellence.

The Need Is Real, the Time Is Now

Gifts like yours are investments in the future of the students, faculty and staff who will shape the future of San Francisco and the world. San Franciscans want more for our children and understand that to achieve and enter the workforce prepared, our graduates must have 21st-century knowledge and skills.

Digital learning is essential and mandated by California in the Common Core Curriculum. Over the past several years, SFUSD has invested the limited public funds it receives for tech to ensure that all schools have the basics: high quality computer labs and broadband Internet. Yet the world continues to dramatically change, and the 21st century teaching and learning outlined by Vision 2025 requires students to have untethered access to digital devices, applications and content throughout their prek-12 experience. This shift to a more ubiquitous and personalized use of technology in all subject areas and grade levels requires expanded access to digital devices and wireless classrooms.
