Private schools in the Bay Area have thousands of empty seats, and with your help we can fill those seats today. No waiting for policy changes, no winning a lottery.
As we reach this important milestone, we thank our donors and supporters for making a difference in the lives of these families and students.
“What you are doing really is sowing seeds into the lives of these families. That is going to reap a harvest and change society. Generations will be affected by the education you are giving them.”
“There is no way we could have done this without you. I wish the people who find the money to give to families had the opportunity to see how far reaching this is. Like dropping one pebble into a pond and seeing the ripples. It’s transformative, not only for these families, but for this community.”
Over 95% of BASIC Fund alumni go on to graduate from high school, compared to less than 75% for many low-income students in district schools.
“Because of your support, I have had the privilege to take hold of my education. I thank you for giving us something no one can ever take away: hope and the courage to strive and reach whatever we aspire to be.”
