Changing Thousands of Lives

By lifting up one child,
we lift up a family.

By lifting up many children,
we lift many families.

By lifting many families,
we lift a community.

By lifting many communities,
we lift our entire state,
our nation and ourselves.

"The BASIC Fund has helped thousands of Bay Area children, and can help thousands more. It’s a remarkable story.”
- Arthur Rock, Co-Founder & President Emeritus
