The BASIC Fund is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance education equity for low-income families by helping offset the cost of tuition at private schools in the Bay Area. 100% of donations made to The BASIC Fund go directly to scholarships.
"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
"It's such a simple program. Make the money available. Don't judge where the kids should go-the parents judge. Be open to all types of schools that are doing a good job."
- Jim Herbert, Board Chairman
