Funding Impact

With support from our generous donors, we recruit, train, and develop teachers to expand learning opportunities for kids in some of our highest poverty communities.

Annual Dinner

Each year, TFA-Bay Area staff and Board of Directors, host an evening of inspiring student and teacher stories, compelling speakers, and fellowship. Our 2017 Annual Dinner, themed “25 Years of Impact” in celebration of TFA’s twenty-five year presence in the Bay Area, featured student spoken word, uplifting stories from alumni, and a compelling keynote by Dr. Priscilla Chan.

As the 2018 event takes shape, we will share details here. We look forward to hosting what is sure to be another evening of learning, sharing and inspiration.

2017 Keynote speaker

Dr. Priscilla Chan shared her personal story and spoke on the need to build a movement of everyday citizens, and public and private leaders, who believe in new possibilities for our kids. “It’s no surprise that when we find a great organization to partner with, there’s often a TFA alumnus behind it.”
