Their fundraising goals for this year’s Gala are as ambitious as their programatic goals for the 2017-18 school year.

  • Outdoor Science Camperships for 455 of our most disadvantaged fifth graders.
  • Summer School Student Math Coaches for over 500 middle school students looking to get a jump on math.
  • Teacher mini-grants for Project Based Learning.
  • Season of Service, Period of Peace serving 4,500 middle and high school students.
  • Moving the math achievement needle with a pilot Elementary STEAM Support program.

We hope you can join them at this year’s Gala and/or purchase some raffle tickets to help make sure they are able to deliver these important programs to our San Leandro students.
