Berkeley Public Schools Fund

Community Block Party

April 29, 11:00 am-3:00 pm

Civic Center Park

The Berkeley Public Schools Fund’s Annual Block Party is a celebration of our students learning to thrive in school and in life. Berkeley’s Civic Center Park will be alive with performances, exhibits and demonstrations of the student talent and brilliance fostered by equitable public schools.

Your Business Sponsorship or individual support, will fund our grants, volunteers, and STEM programming which center equity for the benefit of our students and the entire community. Your support will further our work to instill a love of learning in every student and the knowledge that their community is invested in their future.

Thank You To Everyone Who Participated in Our 2022 Block Party


Our sponsors have done the heavy lifting for this fundraiser and if you can add your support we can do even more to further equitable public education in Berkeley through the Schools Fund’s grant and volunteer programs. YOU make the difference in Berkeley schools!
