We must do better by our children and youth living in historically marginalized communities and under-resourced communities, as well as our English language learners and differently abled students, and the great news is we CAN do better. Our Nonprofit Partners are actively improving educational and life outcomes for Bay Area children and youth. They need more resources to meet demand for their programs and services. That’s where OnePercent for Education Pledging Members come in and why growing our Culture of Participation is so important!
