All students in the South San Francisco Unified School District (SSFUSD) deserve the best possible education. Public funding is not enough to provide the the education our students deserve. With educational underfunding and socioeconomic challenges worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic, the time to join forces to support our students and educators is now. When families, community groups, businesses and schools join forces to support learning, our students and entire community benefit.

41% of SSFUSD students received free or reduced meals in 2019-2020 before the pandemic

47% of all SSFUSD 3rd-11th graders met or exceeded Literacy Standards in 2021-2022

39% of all SSFUSD 3rd-11th graders met or exceeded Math Standards in 2021-2022


We are a unifying organization working to bring together dedicated volunteers, community partners, businesses and donors committed to educational equity, access, and excellence in all SSFUSD schools. We aim to involve all parts of the SSFUSD community, including students, families, and educators, in identifying critical student needs and deciding what approaches to fund to support students' long-term success.

We believe community voices will help us learn about student barriers, needs, inequities and district-wide areas of opportunity.


We create opportunities for more people to get involved in supporting education.


We develop partnerships with organizations to bring programs to SSFUSD schools.


We raise money from individuals and organizations to bring more resources to SSFUSD students.
