What is Berkeley Public Schools Fund?
Berkeley Public Schools Fund is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire and empower an extraordinary public education for every child.

Every year the Schools Fund awards approximately 300 grants totaling $500,000, serving 9,000 students, 19 schools,and 550 teachers. This, coupled with their volunteer program, means they contribute $1.5 million in grants and in-kind donations every year.
What We Are Doing
The Schools Fund believed in a mission to encourage a stronger and more involved relationship between teachers and the parents of students. This grant platform helps teachers crowdfund donations from the school's local community.
