Thank You For Your Support

Teach For America - Bay Area is grateful for the stewardship and generosity of our supporters. All gifts help our effort to recruit, select, train, and support corps members and alumni. *denotes multi-year gift

Partner Spotlight

Teach For America - Bay Area's first ever social media fundraising campaign, Challenge for Tomorrow's Leaders, launched on March 18th and is running through April 18th. The Bay Area raises 100% of its operating funds through many generous donors and the campaign is an effort to raise $250,000 to offset the cost of supporting and training 50 out of approximately 200 incoming corps members. This challenge also provides us with a means to spread awareness around the hard work and support required to ensure that all kids receive an excellent education here in the Bay.

Event Spotlight

Teach For America’s first annual day of service at Daniel Webster Elementary School was a resounding success. Corps members, alumni, and staff worked alongside teachers, families, and students to clean and beautify the school for the end of the year celebrations.
